Flavobacterium columnare MS-FC-4 is a highly virulent genetic group 1 (formerly genomovar I) strain isolated from rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss). The draft genome consists of three contigs totaling 3,449,277 bp with 2,811 predicted open reading frames. F. columnare MS-FC-4 is a model strain for functional genomic analyses.
Here, we report the complete genome sequence of the pathogenic Aeromonas salmonicida subsp. masoucida strain RFAS1, isolated from black rockfish and showing signs of furunculosis. Sequencing with the PacBio platform yielded a circular chromosome of 4,783,004?bp and two plasmids (70,968?bp and 63,563?bp) harboring 4,411, 67, and 71 protein-coding genes, respectively.

Melissococcus plutonius is the causative agent of European foulbrood, and its isolates were believed to be remarkably genetically homogeneous. However, recent epidemiological and pathogenic studies have shown this pathogen to be more heterogeneous than expected. Herein, we present the whole-genome sequence of M. plutonius DAT561, a representative atypical strain. Copyright © 2018 Okumura et al.
This is the announcement of draft genome sequences for Staphylococcus aureus strains belonging to sequence type 97 (ST97) and ST71. These sequence types are commonly associated with bovine mastitis, and the strains were isolated in Ireland in 2010 from the milk of cows with clinical mastitis.
Arcobacters are routinely recovered from marine environments, and multiple Arcobacter species have been isolated from shellfish. Arcobacter bivalviorum was recovered from mussels collected in the Ebro Delta in northeastern Spain. This report describes the complete whole-genome sequence of the A. bivalviorum type strain LMG 26154 (= F4T = CECT 7835T).
Avian pathogenic Escherichia coli (APEC) is the causative agent of colibacil- losis, a disease that affects poultry production worldwide and leads to multimillion-dollar losses annually. Here, we report the genome sequence of APEC O2-211, a sequence type 117 (ST117) strain isolated from a diseased chicken.
We report here the complete closed genome sequence of Moraxella bo- vis strain Epp-63 (300) (Epp63). This strain was isolated from an infectious bovine keratoconjunctivitis (IBK) case in 1963. Since then, Epp63 has been used extensively for IBK research. Consequently, the genome sequence of Epp63 should help eluci- date IBK host-pathogen interactions.
Pasteurella multocida is an animal-associated Gram-negative member of the Pasteurellaceae family. It is an opportunistic pathogen and is one of the principal bacterial species contributing to bovine respiratory disease complex (BRDC) in feedlot cattle. We present 16 closed genome sequences and antibiograms of isolates cultured from calves exhibiting clinical signs of BRDC and from control calves not showing signs of BRDC.
Gyrovirus 3 (GyV3) has been identified in faeces from children with acute gastroenteritis. However, whether GyV3 is prevalent in poultry has not been determined to date. To the best of our knowledge, this study is the first to isolate GyV3 from commercial broiler chickens with transmissible viral proventriculitis (TVP) in China. The complete genome of the virus shares 98.4% sequence identity with the FecGy strain that causes acute gastroenteritis in children. Epidemiological investigation from 2013 to 2017 revealed that the infection rate of GyV3 reached 12.5% (42/336) in commercial broiler chickens with TVP, indicating that the infection of GyV3 was…
Pseudomonas plecoglossicida is a Gram-negative fish pathogen responsi- ble for visceral granular disease in large yellow croaker, Larimichthys crocea. Here, we report the complete genome sequence of a verified virulent strain, XSDHY-P, that was isolated from spleen tissue of a diseased large yellow croaker.
Austwickia chelonae, a species of Actinobacteria, is one of the pathogens that cause dermatophilosis in animals. Here, we report the complete genome se- quence of Austwickia chelonae LK16-18, which was isolated from cutaneous granulo- mas in crocodile lizards.
Arcobacter species are prevalent in pigs, and strains have been isolated from pig feces and pork meat; some Arcobacter strains may be porcine abortifacients. Arcobacter suis was recovered from pork meat in Spain. This study describes the whole-genome sequence of the A. suis type strain LMG 26152 (=F41T =CECT 7833T).
Here, we present an updated genome assembly of the diploid chytrid fungus Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis strain RTP6. This strain is part of the global panzootic lineage (BdGPL) and was isolated in Dunedin, New Zealand. The assembly was generated using PacBio long-read and Illumina short-read data, allowing for the accurate phasing of heterozygosities.
