Draft Genome Sequence of the Fish Pathogen Piscirickettsia salmonis

Genome Announc. 2013 Nov 7;1(6):e00926-13. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00926-13.


Piscirickettsia salmonis is a Gram-negative intracellular fish pathogen that has a significant impact on the salmon industry. Here, we report the genome sequence of P. salmonis strain LF-89. This is the first draft genome sequence of P. salmonis, and it reveals interesting attributes, including flagellar genes, despite this bacterium being considered nonmotile.
