Authors: Lovett, Sean and Chase, Kitty and Koroleva, Galina and Palacios, Gustavo and Rozak, David and Ladner, Jason T

Here, we report the genome sequence of Yersinia pestis strain Cadman, an attenuated strain lacking the pgm locus. Y. pestis is the causative agent of plague and generally must be worked with under biosafety level 3 (BSL-3) conditions. However, strains lacking the pgm locus are considered safe to work with under BSL-2 conditions. Copyright © 2016 Lovett et al.
