`Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus', an unculturable alpha-proteobacterium, is associated with citrus huanglongbing (HLB), a devastating disease threatening citrus production in Brazil and worldwide. In this study, a draft whole-genome sequence of `Ca. L. asiaticus' strain 9PA from a sweet orange (cultivar Pera) tree collected in Sao Paulo State, Brazil, is reported. The 9PA genome is 1,231,881 bp, including two prophages, with G+C content of 36.7%. This is the first report of a whole-genome sequence of `Ca. L. asiaticus' from Brazil or South America. The 9PA genome sequence will enrich `Ca. L. asiaticus' genome resources and facilitate HLB research and control in Brazil and the world. (AU)
