Abstract

Species of Phytophthora, plant pathogenic eukaryotic microbes, can cause disease on many tree species. Genome sequencing of species from this genus has helped to determine components of their pathogenicity arsenal. Here, we sequenced genomes for two widely distributed species, Phytophthora pseudosyringae and Phytophthora boehmeriae, yielding genome assemblies of 49 and 40 Mb, respectively. We identified more than 270 candidate disease promoting RXLR effector coding genes for each species, and hundreds of genes encoding candidate plant cell wall degrading carbohydrate active enzymes (CAZymes). These data boost genome sequence representation across the Phytophthora genus, and form resources for further study of Phytophthora pathogenesis.
