Abstract

Complete genome sequence of Xanthomonas vesicatoria bacteriophage φxaf18, a contribution to the biocontrol of bacterial spot of pepper in Mexico.

Abstract

Bacteriophage ΦXaF18 infects Xanthomonas vesicatoria, which is the causal agent of bacterial spot in tomato (Solanum lycopersicum L.) and pepper (Capsicum annuum L.). In this announcement, we present the complete genome of X. vesicatoria bacteriophage ΦXaF18, a 47,407-bp genome with 67 protein-coding genes.
