The complete genome sequences of three Xanthomonas citri strains isolated from lime trees in Texas were found to belong to the A(w) group. All carried nearly identical large plasmids with similarity to those of a citrus canker strain from India and to xanthomonads from Africa and Colombia. All three strains harbored unusual pthA homologs. Copyright © 2017 Munoz Bodnar et al.
