Genome Sequence of Chlamydia suis MD56, Isolated from the Conjunctiva of a Weaned Piglet

Genome Announc. 2014 May 8;2(3):e00425-14. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00425-14.


Chlamydia suis is a natural pathogen of pigs (Sus scrofa) and causes conjunctivitis, pneumonia, enteritis, and various reproductive disorders that adversely impact this economically important animal. Here, we report the first C. suis genome, that of C. suis MD56, isolated from a conjunctival swab of a weaned piglet.
