Fifty-six native isolates collected in 12 farming districts of Trinidad and seven reference strains of Xanthomonas campestris pv. campestris were evaluated for resistance to copper in buffered (pH 7.0) and unbuffered (pH 5.6) nutrient agar media. All isolates and reference strains were pathogenic and elicited typical black rot symptoms on a susceptible(More)
Whole genome sequencing of a copper resistant (CuR) black rot strain of Xanthomonas campestris pv. campestris (Xcc) isolated from a broccoli plant in Trinidad revealed a unique operon for copper resistance. The cop genes of strain Xcc-BrA1 were determined to be present on a 160 to 180 kb plasmid shown to be non-conjugative with other xanthomonads. While(More)
