Genome Sequences of Two Pathogenic Streptococcus agalactiae Isolates from the One-Humped Camel Camelus dromedarius

Genome Announc. 2013 Jul 18;1(4):e00515-13. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00515-13.


Streptococcus agalactiae causes a range of clinical syndromes in camels (Camelus dromedarius). We report the genome sequences of two S. agalactiae isolates that induce abscesses in Kenyan camels. These genomes provide novel data on the composition of the S. agalactiae "pan genome" and reveal the presence of multiple genomic islands.
