Microbiol Resour Announc. 2020 Jan 2;9(1):e01377-19. doi: 10.1128/MRA.01377-19.


Bartonella bacilliformis is the biological agent of Carrion's disease, a vector-borne, life-threatening human bartonellosis restricted to South America. Here, we report the complete genome sequence of B. bacilliformis KC584 (ATCC 35686). Although it is commonly used as a reference strain, to date, its complete genome has not been published.
