Complete Genome Sequence of a Metronidazole-Resistant Helicobacter Pylori Strain


Complete Genome Sequence of a Metronidazole-Resistant Helicobacter Pylori Strain

Tran Thanh Binh et al. Genome Announc.


We report here the complete genome sequence of a metronidazole-resistant Helicobacter pylori strain (MET(r)). The MET(r) strain was obtained under exposure of H. pylori 26695 on agar plates with low metronidazole concentrations. The genome data provide insight into the genomic changes of H. pylori under selection by metronidazole in vitro.
