Erwinia amylovora is an important bacterial plant pathogen, which is the causative agent of fire blight. As a member of the Enterobacteriaceae, it is related to Escherichia and Shigella, Salmonella and Yersinia.
The Sanger Institute, funded by the USDA, has completed the sequence of the genome of Erwinia amylovora strain Ea273 in collaboration with Steven Beer of the Department of Plant Pathology, Cornell University, and Nicole Perna of the Department of Genetics, University of Wisconsin.
Published Genome Data
The genome is 3,805,874 bp in size and has a G+C content of approximately 53.5%. There are also two plasmids, one of 71,487 bp and one of 28243 bp.
Shotgun and assembly data from this project are available from our FTP site.

Data Use Statement
This sequencing centre plans on publishing the completed and annotated sequences in a peer-reviewed journal as soon as possible. Permission of the principal investigator should be obtained before publishing analyses of the sequence/open reading frames/genes on a chromosome or genome scale. See our data sharing policy.
