Interpretive Summary: The Stag’s Leap strain of Xylella fastidiosa is used in molecular genetic experiments to assess pathogenicity/virulence determinants of the bacterium causing Pierce’s disease of grapes. Such experiments involve genetic manipulation of the genome of this plant pathogenic bacterium. Determination of the genome sequence of the Stag’s Leap strain facilitates research on X. fastidiosa pathogenicity/virulence by providing precise DNA sequences of genes targeted for study.

Technical Abstract: Xylella fastidiosa subsp. fastidiosa causes Pierce’s disease of grapevine. Presented here is the draft genome sequence of the Stag’s Leap strain, previously used in pathogenicity/virulence assays to evaluate grapevine germplasm bearing Pierce’s disease.
