Complete genome sequence of Neisseria gonorrhoeae NCCP11945

J Bacteriol. 2008 Sep;190(17):6035-6. doi: 10.1128/JB.00566-08. Epub 2008 Jun 27.


Neisseria gonorrhoeae is an obligate human pathogen that is the etiological agent of gonorrhea. We explored variations in the genes of a multidrug-resistant N. gonorrhoeae isolate from a Korean patient in an effort to understand the prevalence, antibiotic resistance, and importance of horizontal gene transfer within this important, naturally competent organism. Here, we report the complete annotated genome sequence of N. gonorrhoeae strain NCCP11945.
