Genome sequence of the human-pathogenic bacterium Vibrio vulnificus type strain ATCC 27562

J Bacteriol. 2012 Dec;194(24):6954-5. doi: 10.1128/JB.01890-12.


Vibrio vulnificus, which is, like Vibrio cholerae and Vibrio parahaemolyticus, a pathogen of humankind, is a Gram-negative, curved, motile, and rod-shaped bacterium [corrected] Here, we present the draft genome sequence of the type strain, ATCC 27562, which was the first isolated Vibrio vulnificus strain.
