Genome sequence of Francisella tularensis subspecies holarctica strain FSC200, isolated from a child with tularemia

J Bacteriol. 2012 Dec;194(24):6965-6. doi: 10.1128/JB.01040-12.


Here we report the complete, accurate 1.89-Mb genome sequence of Francisella tularensis subsp. holarctica strain FSC200, isolated in 1998 in the Swedish municipality Ljusdal, which is in an area where tularemia is highly endemic. This genome is important because strain FSC200 has been extensively used for functional and genetic studies of Francisella and is well-characterized.
