Completed Genome Sequences of Borrelia burgdorferi Sensu Stricto B31(NRZ) and Closely Related Patient Isolates from Europe

Genome Announc. 2017 Jul 13;5(28):e00637-17. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00637-17.


Borrelia burgdorferi sensu stricto is a causative agent of human Lyme borreliosis in the United States and Europe. We report here the completed genome sequences of strain B31 isolated from a tick in the United States and two closely related strains from Europe, PAli and PAbe, which were isolated from patients with erythema migrans and neuroborreliosis, respectively.
