Interpretive Summary: Bibersteinia trehalosi is a respiratory pathogen affecting cattle and related ruminants worldwide. Advanced DNA sequencing and computer algorithms were used to reveal the entire unbroken genetic code of the livestock and wild sheep pathogen Bibersteinia trehalosi. Having complete DNA sequence should contribute to a better understanding of respiratory disease in ruminants.

Technical Abstract: Bibersteinia trehalosi is a respiratory pathogen affecting cattle and related ruminants worldwide. B. trehalosi is closely related to Mannheimia haemolytica, and is often associated with bovine respiratory disease complex (BRDC), a polymicrobial multifactorial disease. We present three complete closed genome sequences of this species generated with an automated assembly pipeline.
