Abstract
The hypervariable genomic regions derived from 35 published C Las genomes were used to decipher the genetic diversity of C Las strains and identify 10 new strains with high variations in prophage regions. Characterizing these variations in the C Las bacteria might provide insight into their evolution and adaptation to host plants and insects in China.

Genetics Immunology and Microbiology (miscellaneous) Molecular Biology
Abstract
Illumina sequencing of a Prunus avium tree with X-disease symptoms was performed to obtain a draft genome of “ Candidatus Phytoplasma pruni.” The genome consists of 14 contigs covering 588,767 bp. This is the first metagenome to be sequenced from the current X-disease epidemic in stone fruit in the Pacific Northwest.

Metagenome-Assembled Genomes for “ <i>Candidatus</i> Phormidium sp. Strain AB48” and Co-occurring Microorganisms from an Industrial Photobioreactor Environment

Abstract
Here, we report metagenome-assembled genomes for “ Candidatus Phormidium sp. strain AB48” and three cooccurring microorganisms from a biofilm-forming industrial photobioreactor environment, using the PacBio sequencing platform. Several mobile genetic elements, including a double-stranded DNA phage and plasmids, were also recovered, with the potential to mediate gene transfer within the biofilm community.

Draft Genome Sequence of “ <i>Candidatus</i> Nardonella dryophthoridicola” Strain NARMHE1, Endosymbiont of Metamasius hemipterus (Coleoptera, Curculionidae, Dryophthorinae)

Abstract
Here, we report the draft genome and annotation of “ Candidatus Nardonella dryophthoridicola” strain NARMHE1, obtained via Oxford Nanopore sequencing of the ovaries of its host, the weevil Metamasius hemipterus , from a population from southeast Brazil.
