Genome sequences of two stress-tolerant Campylobacter jejuni poultry strains, 305 and DFVF1099

J Bacteriol. 2011 Oct;193(19):5546-7. doi: 10.1128/JB.05753-11.


Campylobacter jejuni is a food-borne pathogen with a high prevalence in poultry meat, which in fresh unfrozen condition is the major source of campylobacteriosis. C. jejuni strains DFVF1099 and 305 are considered tolerant to several environmental stresses (T. Birk et al., J. Food Prot. 73:258-265, 2010; S. L. On et al., Int. J. Med. Microbiol. 296:353-363, 2006). Here, we report the genome sequences of C. jejuni 305 and DFVF1099, a turkey and a chicken isolate, respectively.
