Abstract

Genome sequence of Xanthomonas campestris strain FDWSRU 18048, an emerging pathogen of nonnative, invasive garlic mustard (Alliaria petiolata).

Abstract

Xanthomonas campestris infections of nonnative, invasive garlic mustard populations have been recently reported in the eastern United States. Here, we report the genome sequence of the pathogenic X. campestris strain FDWSRU 18048. The genome is 4,978,509 bp and closely related to the genome of X. campestris pv. incanae strain CFBP2527.
