Genome sequence of the emerging pathogen Aeromonas caviae

J Bacteriol. 2011 Mar;193(5):1286-7. doi: 10.1128/JB.01337-10. Epub 2010 Dec 23.


Aeromonas caviae is a Gram-negative, motile and rod-shaped facultative anaerobe that is increasingly being recognized as a cause of diarrhea in children. Here we present the first genome sequence of an A. caviae strain that was isolated as the sole pathogen from a child with profuse diarrhea.
