Complete Genome Sequence of Serratia marcescens U36365, a Green Pigment-Producing Strain Isolated from a Patient with Urinary Tract Infection

Genome Announc. 2016 Aug 11;4(4):e00837-16. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00837-16.


Serratia marcescens is an emerging nosocomial pathogen associated with urinary and respiratory tract infections. In this study, we determined the genome of a green pigment-producing clinical strain, U36365, isolated from a hospital in Southern India. De novo assembly of PacBio long-read sequencing indicates that the U36365 genome consists of a chromosome of 5.12 Mbps and no plasmids.
