Streptococcus suis is an economically important pathogen in the pig industry and is also an emerging zoonotic agent responsible for severe infections in humans. Here, we report the genome sequence of S. suis strain SsRC-1. Specifically, this strain was a serotype 2 and was isolated from a human fatal case of toxic shock syndrome (TSS) in Italy.

The spread of vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecium (VREfm) has become a challenge to health care infection control worldwide. In 2015, a marked increase in VREfm isolation was detected in acute public hospitals in Tasmania. We report here the draft whole-genome sequence of a newly designated VREfm sequence type, sequence type 1421 (ST1421).

Staphylococcus microti DSM 22147 was isolated from viscera of common voles ( Microtus arvalis Pallas) with generalized Brucella microti infection in the Czech Republic. To the best of our knowledge, the genome sequence of the species S. microti has not been previously studied. The complete genome sequence of strain DSM 22147 includes a genome of 2,381,859 bp (38.0% GC content) without any plasmids.

A new Vibrio strain, V7A, was isolated from the intestinal tract of the Peruvian scallop ( Argopecten purpuratus ). Strain V7A clusters within the Mediterranei clade of the genus Vibrio and has the potential to produce bacteriocin-like inhibitory substances (BLIS). Here, we report the draft genome sequence of Vibrio mediterranei strain V7A.

We report here a draft genome sequence of Azospira sp. strain I13 in the class Betaproteobacteria , a facultative anaerobic bacterium responsible for nitrous oxide (N2 O) reduction. Deciphering this genome would pave the way for the use of Azospira sp. strain I13 to facilitate N2 O consumption in a nitrogen-removing bioreactor emitting N2 O.

Neisseria is a diverse genus that includes commensal and pathogenic species that pose a public health threat. While the pathogenic species have been studied extensively, many of the commensals have limited genomic information available. Here, we present draft genome sequences for a diverse set of 37 isolates from 10 Neisseria species.

Coagulase-negative staphylococci (CoNS) are opportunistic pathogens frequently encountered in nosocomial infections. Animal-associated CoNS pose a zoonotic risk and constitute a potential reservoir for virulence and antimicrobial resistance genes. To improve our knowledge of animal-associated CoNS, we sequenced the complete genomes of Staphylococcus felis (ATCC 49168) and Staphylococcus kloosii (ATCC 43959).

Mycobacterium marinum is a slowly growing, broad-host-range mycobacterial species. Here, we report the complete genome sequence of a Mycobacterium marinum type strain that was isolated from tubercles of diseased fish. This sequence will provide essential information for future taxonomic and comparative genome studies of its relatives.

Azospirillum brasilense strains Ab-V5 and Ab-V6 are largely used in commercial inoculants for grasses and legumes in Brazil. Their genomes were estimated at 6,934,595 and 7,197,196 bp, respectively, and encompass genes related to nitrogen fixation, synthesis of phytohormones, and environmental adaptation. Although the strains differ in phenotypic properties, their genomes are highly similar.

Pigeon-adapted strains of Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium var. Copenhagen phage types 2 and 99 obtained from the provinces of Alberta, British Columbia, and Ontario, Canada, were analyzed using whole-genome sequencing. All isolates contained the Salmonella virulence plasmid despite the low pathogenicity of this lineage in their avian host.

The self-flocculation of yeast cells presents advantages for continuous ethanol fermentation such as their self-immobilization within fermenters for high density to improve ethanol productivity and cost-effective biomass recovery by gravity sedimentation. We sequenced and analyzed the genome of the self-flocculating Saccharomyces cerevisiae SPSC01 for the industrial production of fuel ethanol.
