New reference genome sequences for 17 bacterial strains of the honey bee gut microbiota.

Authors: Ellegaard, Kirsten M. and Engel, Philipp

We sequenced the genomes of 17 strains isolated from the gut of honey bees, including strains representing the genera Lactobacillus, Bifidobacterium, Gilliamella, Snodgrassella, Frischella, and Commensalibacter. These genome sequences represent an important step forward in the development of a comprehensive reference database to aid future analysis of this emerging gut microbiota model.
