Vibrio vulnificus, an opportunistic pathogen, is the causative agent of life-threatening septicemia and severe wound infections. However, the pathogenicity and virulence factors of V. vulnificus are not fully understood. Here we report the complete genome sequence of V. vulnificus VV2014DJH, which was isolated from a death case.The genome of the V. vulnificus VV2014DJH contains two circular chromosomes with a mean G+C content of 46.8%, but does not consists of any plasmids. The chromosome I and chromosome II consist of 3,303,590 and 1,770,972 bp, respectively. In addition, the genome consists of 4617 protein coding genes, 172 RNA genes and type I, II and III secretion systems were predicted.In this study, the genomic information of the V. vulnificus VV2014DJH has been described. The information would contribute to the increasing scope and depth of Vibrio genome database, and provide insights into the pathogenicity and virulence factors of V. vulnificus.
