Complete Genome Sequence of an Edwardsiella piscicida-Like Species Isolated From Diseased Grouper in Israel

Genome Announc. 2015 Jul 23;3(4):e00829-15. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00829-15.

Abstract

The Edwardsiella piscicida-like sp. is a Gram-negative facultative anaerobe that causes disease in some fish species. We report here the complete genome sequence of a virulent isolate from a diseased white grouper (Epinephelus aeneus) raised on the Red Sea in Israel, which contains a chromosome of 3,934,167 bp and no plasmids.
