Abstract
ABSTRACT The genomes of obligate bacterial co-symbionts of the green rice leafhopper Nephotettix cincticeps , which is notorious as an agricultural pest, were determined. The streamlined genomes of “ Candidatus Sulcia muelleri” and “ Candidatus Nasuia deltocephalinicola” exhibited complementary metabolic pathways for synthesizing essential nutrients that contribute to host adaptation.
