Genome Announc. 2014 Sep 25;2(5):e00947-14. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00947-14.


Porphyromonas gingivalis is considered a major etiologic agent in adult periodontitis. Gingipains are among its most important virulence factors, but their release is unique in strain HG66. We present the genome sequence of HG66 with a single contig of 2,441,680 bp and a G+C content of 48.1%.
