Virulence related sequences: insights provided by comparative genomics of Streptococcus uberis of differing virulence
Hossain, Maqsud and Egan, Sharon A. and Coffey, Tracey and Ward, Philip N. and Wilson, Ray and Leigh, James A. and Emes, Richard D. (2015) Virulence related sequences: insights provided by comparative genomics of Streptococcus uberis of differing virulence. BMC Genomics, 16 . e334/1-e334/13. ISSN 1471-2164
Background: Streptococcus uberis, a Gram-positive, catalase-negative member of the family Streptococcaceae is an important environmental pathogen responsible for a significant proportion of subclinical and clinical bovine intramammary infections. Currently, the genome of only a single reference strain (0140J) has been described. Here we present a comparative analysis of complete draft genome sequences of an additional twelve S. uberis strains.
