Complete genome sequence of the larvicidal bacterium Lysinibacillus sphaericus strain OT4b.25.

Authors: Rey, Andrés and Silva-Quintero, Laura and Dussán, Jenny

Lysinibacillus sphaericus OT4b.25 is a native Colombian strain isolated from coleopteran larvae in an oak forest near Bogotá D.C.; this strain has shown high levels of pathogenic activity against Culex quinquefasciatus larvae in laboratory assays compared to that of other members of the same species. Using Pacific Biosciences sequencing technology, we propose a chromosomal contig of 4,665,775 bp that, according to comparative analysis, is highly similar to that of reference strain L. sphaericus C3-41.
