Complete genome sequence of Burkholderia sp. strain RPE64, bacterial symbiont of the bean bug Riptortus pedestris.

We isolated Burkholderia symbiont strain RPE64 from the bean bug Riptortus pedestris. Analysis of the complete 6.96-Mb genome, which consists of three chromosomes and two plasmids, will facilitate further understanding of insect-microbe symbiosis and the development of pest-control technologies.
