Draft Genome of Biocontrol Agent Pythium periplocum Strain CBS 532.74

Kushwaha, Sandeep Kumar; Vetukuri, Ramesh; Grenville-Briggs Didymus, Laura


The oomycete Pythium periplocum is an aggressive mycoparasite of a number of plant pathogenic fungi and oomycetes and therefore has potential as a biological control agent. Here, we report the first draft genome sequence of P. periplocum, which comprises 35.89 Mb. It contains 1,043 scaffolds and 14,399 predicted protein-coding genes.
