Live attenuated vaccines are essential elements in control programs for the prevention of brucellosis. Here, we report the whole-genome sequence of the original Elberg Brucella melitensis Rev.1 vaccine strain, passage 101 (1970). Commercial lines of the original strain have been successfully used in small ruminants worldwide. Copyright © 2018 Salmon-Divon et al.
