Organisms Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. cubense
Description Fusarium wilt or Panama disease of banana is caused by the soil-borne fungal pathogen Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. cubense (Foc) and is one of the most catastrophic plant diseases in the world. Foc race 1 (Foc1) nearly destroyed global banana export Trade in the 19th century before the development of the Foc1-resistant cultivar Cavendish. Foc tropical race 4 (FocTR4) is a new serious threat to banana cultivation due to its strong pathogenicity affecting nearly all banana cultivars including the Cavendish subgroup. Foc1 and FocTR4 strains using single-molecule real-time sequencing technology. The Foc1 and FocTR4 assemblies had 35 and 29 contigs with contig N50 lengths of 2.08 Mb and 4.28 Mb, respectively, and the contigs were further anchored and oriented onto 11 chromosomes.
