Genome Sequence of Edwardsiella Ictaluri 93-146, a Strain Associated With a Natural Channel Catfish Outbreak of Enteric Septicemia of Catfish

J Bacteriol. 2012 Feb;194(3):740-1. doi: 10.1128/JB.06522-11.

Abstract

Edwardsiella ictaluri is the cause of extensive mortalities and economic losses to the channel catfish industry of the southeast United States. Here we report the complete genome of Edwardsiella ictaluri 93-146. Whole-genome sequence analysis of E. ictaluri provides a tool for understanding the genomic regions specific to the species and the Edwardsiella genus.
