Project description:"Candidatus Sulcia muelleri" is a symbiont of sap-feeding insects in the suborder Auchenorrhyncha. The strain "Ca. Sulcia muelleri" ML is associated with the maize leafhopper (Dalbulus maidis), collected in Brazil, which is a disease vector that affects corn production. Here, we report the complete genome sequence of this bacterium.
Project description:The genome of "Candidatus Sulcia muelleri" strain KPTW1 from Kolla paulula, a vector of Xylella fastidiosa that causes Pierce's disease (PD) of grapevine in Taiwan, was sequenced. The strain has a genome size of 253,942?bp, GC content of 22.7%, 237 predicted protein-coding genes, and 34 RNA genes.
Project description:Two bacterial symbionts of the European pest leafhopper, Macrosteles quadripunctulatus (Hemiptera: Cicadellidae), were fully sequenced. "Candidatus Sulcia muelleri" and "Ca. Nasuia deltocephalinicola" represent two of the smallest known bacterial genomes at 190 kb and 112 kb, respectively. Genome sequences are nearly identical to strains reported from the closely related host species, M. quadrilineatus.
