- Erwinia oleae is a nonpathogenic bacterial species isolated from olive knots caused by Pseudomonas savastanoi pv. savastanoi. Since the presence of E. oleae in the knots increases disease severity, interspecies interactions with the pathogen are hypothesized. Here, we report the first draft genome sequence of the E. oleae type strain.
