Bordetella pertussis is the causative agent of pertussis, a disease which has resurged despite vaccination. We report the complete, annotated genomes of isolates B1917 and B1920, representing two lineages predominating globally in the last 50 years. The B1917 lineage has been associated with the resurgence of pertussis in the 1990s. Copyright © 2014 Bart et al.
