Draft Genome Sequences for 10 Isolates of the Swine Pathogen Haemophilus parasuis

Genome Announc. 2013 Sep 19;1(5):e00739-13. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00739-13.


Haemophilus parasuis colonizes the upper respiratory tract of swine and can cause a severe systemic disease known as Glässer's disease. We report here the draft genome sequences of 10 isolates from geographically diverse locations representing the full virulence spectrum of the microorganism, which will aid in understanding the pathobiology of H. parasuis.
