Genome Sequences of 14 Firmicutes Strains Isolated from the Human Vagina

Genome Announc. 2016 Sep 29;4(5):e00888-16. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00888-16.


Research on vaginal infections is currently limited by a lack of available fully sequenced bacterial reference strains. Here, we present strains (now available through BEI Resources) and genome sequences for a set of 14 vaginal isolates from the phylum Firmicutes These genome sequences provide a valuable resource for future research in understanding the role of Gram-positive bacteria in vaginal health and disease.
