Complete Genome Sequence Data of Three Xylella fastidiosa subsp. multiplex Strains Isolated from Olive Trees in California, U.S.A.
Xylella fastidiosa is a xylem-limited bacterial plant pathogen that causes disease on numerous hosts. Additionally, X. fastidiosa asymptomatically colonizes a wide range of plant species. X. fastidiosa subsp. multiplex has been detected in olive (Olea europaea) trees grown in California, U.S.A., as well as in Europe. Strains of X. fastidiosa subsp. multiplex isolated from California olive trees are not known to cause disease on olive, although some can induce leaf-scorch symptoms on almond (Prunus dulcis). No genome assemblies currently exist for olive-associated X. fastidiosa subsp. multiplex strains; therefore, a hybrid assembly method was used to generate complete genome sequences for three X. fastidiosa subsp. multiplex strains (Fillmore, LM10, and RH1) isolated from olive trees grown in Ventura and Los Angeles counties of California.
