Complete Genome Sequence of Neisseria Meningitidis Serogroup A Strain NMA510612, Isolated From a Patient With Bacterial Meningitis in China

Abstract

Serogroup A meningococcal strains have been involved in several pandemics and a series of epidemics worldwide in the past. Determination of the genome sequence of the prevalent genotype strain will help us understand the genetic background of the evolutionary and epidemiological properties of these bacteria. We sequenced the complete genome of Neisseria meningitidis NMA510612, a clinical isolate from a patient with meningococcal meningitis.
