Genome Announc. 2013 Jan;1(1):e00002-12. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00002-12. Epub 2013 Feb 21.


The number of inflammatory gastroenteritis outbreaks due to the food-borne pathogen Vibrio parahaemolyticus is rising sharply worldwide and in the United States in particular. Here we report the complete, annotated genome sequence of the prepandemic V. parahaemolyticus strain BB22OP and make some initial comparisons to the complete genome sequence for pandemic strain RIMD2210633.
