Draft Genome Sequence of Erwinia dacicola, a Dominant Endosymbiont of Olive Flies. Academic Article uri icon


  • Erwinia dacicola is a dominant endosymbiont of the pestiferous olive fly. Its genome is similar in size and GC content to those of free-living Erwinia species, including the plant pathogen Erwinia amylovora. The E. dacicola genome encodes the metabolic capability to supplement and detoxify the olive fly's diet in larval and adult stages.
