Pseudomonas syringae pv. syringae strain WSPS007 was isolated from infected twigs (Malus pumila) in 2013 in Yeongju, Gyeongbuk Province, Republic of Korea. Here, we report the draft genome sequence of WSPS007 with a chromosome size of 6,238,498 bp (59.04% G+C content). The genome comprises 5,379 CDS, 16 rRNA genes, and 65 tRNA genes. The P. syringae pv. syringae strain WSPS007 genome possesses an ice-nucleating activation (INA) gene and an antifreeze operon that may be related to frost damage by this pathogen. Thus, the genome sequence determined in this study will be useful in understanding the relationship between the outbreak of bacterial shoot blight disease and frost damage in northern Gyeongbuk Province.
