Complete Genome Sequence of Encapsulated Haemophilus Influenzae Type F KR494, an Invasive Isolate That Caused Necrotizing Myositis

Genome Announc. 2013 Oct 3;1(5):e00470-13. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00470-13.


Haemophilus influenzae serotype f (Hif) is an etiologic agent of bacterial invasive disease. Here, we report the first annotated genome sequence of the Hif strain KR494, which was isolated from a patient suffering from sepsis and necrotizing myositis. The genome sequence will increase the understanding of Hif pathogenesis.
