Complete Genome Sequence of Vibrio Parahaemolyticus Environmental Strain UCM-V493

Genome Announc. 2014 Mar 13;2(2):e00159-14. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00159-14.


Vibrio parahaemolyticus is the leading bacterial cause of seafood-related gastroenteritis in the world. Here, we report the complete genome sequence and annotation of an environmental strain of V. parahaemolyticus, UCM-V493, with the aim of understanding the differences between the clinical and environmental isolates of the bacteria. We also make some preliminary sequence comparisons with the clinical strain RIMD2210633.
