Whole-genome Sequence of Stenotrophomonas Maltophilia D457, a Clinical Isolate and a Model Strain

J Bacteriol. 2012 Jul;194(13):3563-4. doi: 10.1128/JB.00602-12.


Stenotrophomonas maltophilia is an opportunistic pathogen with an environmental origin, and it is an increasingly relevant cause of nosocomial infections. Here we present the whole-genome sequence of S. maltophilia strain D457, a clinical isolate that is being used as a model for studying antibiotic resistance in this bacterial species.
