Interpretive Summary: Verticillium dahliae is a soilborne fungal pathogen that causes Verticillium wilt disease on over 200 plant species, including many economically important crops and ornamentals. Acquiring and characterizing the genomic sequences of isolates of this pathogen provides crucial resources to study pathogen evolution and to assist in plant breeding programs that aim to incorporate Verticillium wilt resistance. In this work, the genomic sequence of a V. dahliae isolate from lettuce in California was sequenced and characterized, providing a high-quality reference for future studies.

Technical Abstract: Verticillium dahliae is widespread fungal pathogen that causes Verticillium wilt on many economically important crops and ornamentals worldwide. Populations of V. dahliae have been divided into two distinct races based upon differential host responses in tomato and lettuce and an additional race has recently been described in tomato. Herein, we provide a high-quality reference genome for the race 1 strain VdLs.16 from lettuce. This resource will contribute to ongoing research that aims to elucidate the genetic basis of pathogenicity and population genomic diversity in V. dahliae.
