Draft Genome Sequence of a Mucoid Isolate of Pseudomonas Aeruginosa Strain C7447m From a Patient With Cystic Fibrosis

Genome Announc. 2013 Oct 10;1(5):e00837-13. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00837-13.


Alginate overproduction by Pseudomonas aeruginosa, or mucoidy, plays an important role in the pathogenesis of chronic lung infections in cystic fibrosis (CF) patients. Here we report the draft genome sequence of a clinical isolate of mucoid P. aeruginosa strain C7447m from a CF patient with chronic lung infection.
