Complete Genome Sequence of Vitreoscilla filiformis (ATCC 15551), Used as a Cosmetic Ingredient

Genome Announc. 2017 Aug 24;5(34):e00913-17. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00913-17.


We report the first complete genome sequence of a Vitreoscilla filiformis strain (ATCC 15551) that is used in the cosmetic industry as Vitreoscilla ferment. The assembled genome consisted of one chromosome and two plasmids. These data will provide valuable information and important insights into the physiology of this filamentous organism.
