Here, we report a chromosome-level genome assembly of Fusarium oxysporum strain Fo47 (12 pseudomolecules; contig N50: 4.52Mb), generated using a combination of PacBio long-read, Illumina pair-ended and Hi-C sequencing data. Although F. oxysporum causes vascular wilt to over 100 plant species, the strain Fo47 is classified as an endophyte and widely used as a biocontrol agent for plant disease control. The Fo47 genome carries a single accessory chromosome of 4.23 Mb, compared to the reference genome of F. oxysporum f.sp. lycopersici strain Fol4287. The high-quality assembly and annotation of the Fo47 genome will be a valuable resource for studying the mechanisms underlying the endophytic interactions between F. oxysporum and plants, as well as deciphering the genome evolution of the F. oxysporum species complex. ### Competing Interest Statement The authors have declared no competing interest.
