Draft genome sequence of the shrimp pathogen Vibrio harveyi CAIM 1792

J Bacteriol. 2012 Apr;194(8):2104. doi: 10.1128/JB.00079-12.


Vibrio harveyi is a Gram-negative bacterium found in tropical and temperate marine environments as a free-living organism or in association with aquatic animals. We report the first sequenced genome of a Vibrio harveyi strain, CAIM 1792, the etiologic agent of the "bright red" syndrome of the Pacific white shrimp Litopenaeus vannamei.
