Xanthomonas translucens pathovar arrhenatheri, pathovar poae, and pathovar phlei draft genomes

What is it about?

Draft genome data of Xanthomonas translucens strains are outlined that represent the pathovars arrhenatheri, poae, and phlei.

Why is it important?

Bacteria of the species Xanthomonas translucens are causal agents of bacterial wilt on grains and grasses. The genome data provided in this study represent pathogens that seriously affect forage grasses. The data deepens our understanding of the pathogens and provides a basis to facilitate the breeding of less susceptible grass varieties.
