Complete Genome Sequence of Serotype III Streptococcus agalactiae Sequence Type 17 Strain 874391

Genome Announc. 2017 Oct 19;5(42):e01107-17. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.01107-17.


Here we report the complete genome sequence of Streptococcus agalactiae strain 874391. This serotype III isolate is a member of the hypervirulent sequence type 17 (ST-17) lineage that causes a disproportionate number of cases of invasive disease in humans and mammals. A brief historical context of the strain is discussed.
