Complete Genome Sequence of Bifidobacterium longum GT15: Unique Genes for Russian Strains

Genome Announc. 2014 Dec 18;2(6):e01348-14. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.01348-14.


In this study, we report the first completely annotated genome sequence of the Russian-origin Bifidobacterium longum subsp. longum strain GT15. We discovered 35 unique genes (UGs) which were detected from only the B. longum GT15 genome and were absent from other B. longum strain genomes (not of Russian origin).
