Genome Sequence of Rhizoctonia solani Anastomosis Group 4 Strain Rhs4ca, a Wide Spread Pathomycete in Field Crops.
Rhizoctonia solani is an important soil-borne fungal pathogen that causes serious diseases on multiple agricultural crops and vegetables. Here, we report a complete genome assembly of R. solani AG4 (Assembly: 45.47 Mb; contig N50: 1.56 Mb), using a combination of Illumina pare-end and Pacbio long-read sequencing data. A total of 267 non-coding RNAs and 11,592 genes were predicted which contained 109 genes associated carbohydrate-active enzymes and 2,488 genes involved host-pathogen interactions. The complete genome lays a valuable foundation for studying the interactions between host plants and pathogenic fungus and for searching potential` antimicrobial targets.
