We report the draft genome sequence of the Xanthomonas cassavae type strain CFBP 4642, the causal agent of bacterial necrosis on cassava plants. These data will allow to compare this non vascular pathogen with the vascular pathogen X. axonopodis pv. manihotis, both infecting the same host, and to develop diagnostic tools.
