Genome Sequence of the Human Abscess Isolate Streptococcus intermedius BA1

Genome Announc. 2013 Jan;1(1):e00117-12. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00117-12. Epub 2013 Jan 31.


Streptococcus intermedius is a human pathogen with a propensity for abscess formation. We report a high-quality draft genome sequence of S. intermedius strain BA1, an isolate from a human epidural abscess. This sequence provides insight into the biology of S. intermedius and will aid investigations of pathogenicity.
