The genome of Diplodia seriata was sequenced by the Department of Viticulture and Enology at University of California Davis (http://cantulab.github.com/). The genome sequence and gene predictions were downloaded from NCBI on Sept 24, 2015. Please note that this copy of the genome is not maintained by NCBI and is therefore not automatically updated. JGI tools were used to add functional annotation to the gene models.

The ascomycete D. seriata De Not., a member of the Botryosphaeriaceae family, is a vascular pathogen that causes Botryosphaeria dieback in grapevines. Botryosphaeria dieback is characterized by wedged- or pie-shape cankers in spurs, cordons and/or trunks, and/or dark streaking of the wood. Disease symptoms caused by botryosphaeriaceous fungi include leaf spots, fruit rots, shoot dieback, bud necrosis, vascular discoloration of the wood, and perennial cankers. The sequenced isolate (UCDDS831) was recovered from diseased grapevine wood sampled in Hollister, San Benito Co., California, in June 2011.
