Abstract

Rhizobium vitis strain VAT03-9 (MAFF 211676) is a causal agent of crown gall disease in grapevine. It is one of the pathogenic strains of R. vitis isolated from graft unions of grapevine in Okayama Prefecture, Japan. Inoculation tests verified its virulence for gall formation on grapevine, tomato, and sunflower. It harbors tumor-inducing plasmid. Here, we present the complete genome sequence with annotation of R. vitis VAR03-9 obtained by assembling reads from PacBio and Illumina-sequencers. This genome sequence should be useful for the analyses of pathogenicity and evolutionary lineage of the pathogens of crown gall disease.
