Plain language summary

Two Pseudomonas strains were isolated from hazelnut showing symptoms of shoot dieback and necrosis. We sequenced the draft genomes of the two strains with the goal of determining their taxonomic position relative to close lineages. Our analysis classified the two strains as belonging to Pseudomonas cerasi and P. congelans species.

Abstract

© Crown copyright 2020.Two Pseudomonas strains (H346-M and H346-S) were isolated from hazelnut trees showing symptoms of shoot dieback and necrosis. The draft genome sequences of H346-M and H346-S consist of 66 and 51 contigs, respectively, with total sizes of 5,693,988 and 5,889,925 bp and 4,885 and 5,045 protein-coding sequences, respectively.
