Complete Genome Sequence of Acinetobacter baumannii Strain B8300, Which Displays High Twitching Motility

Genome Announc. 2015 Aug 20;3(4):e00956-15. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00956-15.


Acinetobacter baumannii has emerged as an important nosocomial pathogen causing health care-associated infections. In this study, we determined the genome of a twitching-positive clinical strain, B8300, isolated from a hospital in southern India. De novo assembly of PacBio long-read sequencing data generated the B8300 genome that consists of a chromosome of 3.82 Mbp and a plasmid of 25.15 kbp.
