Draft Genome Sequence of Enterobacter sp. Strain OLF, a Colonizer of Olive Flies. Academic Article uri icon


  • Enterobacter sp. strain OLF colonizes laboratory-reared and wild individuals of the olive fruit fly Bactrocera oleae. The 5.07-kbp genome sequence of Enterobacter sp. strain OLF encodes metabolic pathways that allow the bacterium to partially supplement the diet of the olive fly when its dominant endosymbiont, Erwinia dacicola, is absent.
