Annotation Data from: Genome Resources of Four Distinct Pathogenic Races Within Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. vasinfectum that Cause Vascular Wilt Disease of Cotton
Whole genome sequence (WGS) based identifications are being increasingly used by regulatory and public health agencies to facilitate the detection, investigation, and control of pathogens and pests. Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. vasinfectum is a significant vascular wilt pathogen of cultivated cotton and consists of several pathogenic races that are not each other’s closest phylogenetic relatives. We have developed WGS assemblies for isolates of F. oxysporum f. sp. vasinfectum race 1 (FOV1), race 4 (FOV4), race 5 (FOV5), and race 8 (FOV8) using a combination of Nanopore (MinION) and Illumina sequencing technology (Mi-Seq).
