Streptomyces scabies is an important bacterial plant pathogen, and is the causative agent of potato scab.
The Sanger Institute was funded by the USDA to sequence the genome of Streptomyces scabies strain 87.22 in collaboration with Rosemary Loria of the Department of Plant Pathology, Cornell University.
Published Genome Data
The finished chromosome is 10,148,695 bp with a G+C content of 71.45%. The publsihed, fully annotated genome is available from the EMBL/GenBank databases with accession number FN554889.
Shotgun and assembly data from this project are available from our FTP site.
Streptomyces scabies 87-22 contains a coronafacic acid-like biosynthetic cluster that contributes to plant-microbe interactions.
Molecular plant-microbe interactions : MPMI 2010;23;2;161-75
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.
