Interpretive Summary: Rice orange leaf disease is a newly emerged disease in southern China. The disease is associated with infection by the rice orange leaf phytoplasma (ROLP). As for many non-culturable plant pathogenic bacteria, whole genome sequencing is an efficient and effective tool to study ROLP. This research sequenced the whole genome of a ROLP strain from Guangdong, China. The published sequences will enrich the bacterial sequence database and facilitate future research on phytoplasmas.
Technical Abstract: The genome of rice orange leaf phytoplasma strain LD1 from Luoding City, Guangdong, P. R. China, was sequenced. The draft LD1genome is 599,264 bp with GC content of 28.2%, 647 predicted open reading frames and 33 RNA genes.
