We report here the complete and annotated genome sequence of the plant-pathogenic bacterium Xylella fastidiosa subsp. pauca strain De Donno. This strain was recovered from an olive tree severely affected by olive quick decline syndrome (OQDS), a devastating olive disease associated with X. fastidiosa infections in susceptible olive cultivars.

The work was supported by funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under grant agreement 635646: Pest Organisms Threatening Europe (POnTE)
