Complete Genome Sequence of Streptococcus Pyogenes emm14 JS95, a Necrotizing Fasciitis Strain Isolated in Israel

Jacqueline L Y Chee et al. Genome Announc.

Abstract

Here, we report the complete genome sequence of the Streptococcus pyogenes emm14 strain JS95, isolated from a patient with necrotizing fasciitis. The streptococcal invasion locus (sil), the first quorum-sensing system characterized in S. pyogenes, was identified in this strain.
