Complete genome sequence of Aggregatibacter (Haemophilus) aphrophilus NJ8700

J Bacteriol. 2009 Jul;191(14):4693-4. doi: 10.1128/JB.00447-09. Epub 2009 May 15.


We report the finished and annotated genome sequence of Aggregatibacter aphrophilus strain NJ8700, a strain isolated from the oral flora of a healthy individual, and discuss characteristics that may affect its dual roles in human health and disease. This strain has a rough appearance, and its genome contains genes encoding a type VI secretion system and several factors that may participate in host colonization.
