Whole-Genome Sequences of Bacteremia Isolates of Bordetella holmesii

Genome Announc. 2017 Sep 28;5(39):e01023-17. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.01023-17.


Bordetella holmesii causes respiratory and invasive diseases in humans, but its pathogenesis remains poorly understood. We report here the genome sequences of seven bacteremia isolates of B. holmesii, including the type strain. Comparative analysis of these sequences may aid studies of B. holmesii biology and assist in the development of species-specific diagnostic strategies.
