Completion of genome of Aeromonas salmonicida subsp. salmonicida 01-B526 reveals how sequencing technologies can influence sequence quality and result interpretations.

Authors: Vincent, A T and Charette, S J

Aeromonas salmonicida subsp. salmonicida is a pathogen that primarily infects salmonids. A strain of this bacterium, 01-B526, has been used in several studies as a reference. The genomic sequence of this strain is available, but comes from pyrosequencing and is the second most fragmented assembly for this bacterium. We generated its closed genome sequence and found a pitfall in result interpretations associated with low-quality genomic sequences.
