Interpretive Summary: DNA from a cherry tree with X-disease was sequenced to obtain a draft genome of Candidatus Phytoplasma pruni. The genome has 14 contigs for a total of 588,767 bp. This is the first sequenced isolate from the current outbreak of X-disease in stone fruit in the Pacific Northwest.
Technical Abstract: Illumina sequencing of a Prunus avium (cherry) tree with classic X-disease symptoms was performed to obtain a draft genome of Candidatus Phytoplasma pruni. The genome consists of 14 contigs covering 588,767 bp. This is the first isolate to be sequenced from the current X-disease epidemic in stone fruit in the Pacific Northwest.
