Abstract

Ralstonia solanacearum the causal agent of bacterial wilt and brown rot disease is one of the major pathogens of solanaceous crops including potato around the globe. Biovar 2T (phylotype II/sequevar 25) of R. solanacearum is adapted to tropical lowlands and only reported from South America and Iran. So far, no genome resource of the biovar 2T of the pathogen was available. Here we present the near complete genome sequences of the biovar 2T strain CFBP 8697 as well as the strain CFBP 8695 belonging to biovar 2/race 3, both isolated from potato in Iran. The genomic data of biovar 2T will extend our understanding of the virulence features of R. solanacearum, and pave the way of research on biovar 2T functional and interaction genetics.
