  • a Temecula was isolated from grapevine in California, and 9a5c was isolated from citrus in São Paulo, Brazil (33).

  • b See supplementary material mentioned in the text for gene maps, gene lists, and categories.

  • c The data presented are from our updated genome analysis. This revision removed small hypothetical ORFs, now thought to be false predictions.
