Complete Genome Sequence of Vibrio Vulnificus MO6-24/O

J Bacteriol. 2011 Apr;193(8):2062-3. doi: 10.1128/JB.00110-11. Epub 2011 Feb 11.


Vibrio vulnificus is the causative agent of life-threatening septicemia and severe wound infections. Here, we announce the complete annotated genome sequence of V. vulnificus MO6-24/O, isolated from a patient with septicemia. When it is compared with previously known V. vulnificus genomes, the genome of this bacterium shows a unique genetic makeup, including phagelike elements, carbohydrate metabolism-related genes, and the superintegron.
