'Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus,' an uncultured α-proteobacterium, is associated with citrus huanglongbing (HLB, yellow shoot disease), a destructive disease threatening citrus production worldwide. Here, we reported the draft genome sequence of 'Ca. L. asiaticus' strain Myan16 from an HLB-affected lime tree in Myitkyina, Kachin State, Myanmar. The strain Myan16 genome is 1,229,102 bp with an average G+C content of 36.4%, along with a circular prophage: P-Myan16-2 (36,303 bp, type 2). This is the first genome sequence of a 'Ca. L. asiaticus' strain from Myanmar, which will enrich the current 'Ca. L. asiaticus' genome sequence database and facilitate HLB epidemiology research in Asia and world.
