ABSTRACT“CandidatusPortiera aleyrodidarum” is the primary endosymbiont of whiteflies. We report two complete genome sequences of this bacterium from the worldwide invasive B and Q biotypes of the whiteflyBemisia tabaci. Differences in the two genome sequences may add insights into the complex differences in the biology of both biotypes.
Portiera aleyrodidarum” is the obligate primary endosymbiotic bacterium of whiteflies, including the sweet potato whitefly
, and provides essential nutrients to its host. Here we report two complete genome sequences of this bacterium from the B and Q biotypes of
