The objectives of this project are to characterize a recently emerging Weissela sp. bacterium by whole genome sequencing. Use sequences to identify potential virulence factors as well as diagnostic and vaccine targets.
Sequencing will be accomplished using an Ion Torrent instrument to rapidly sequence and produce a high-quality draft assembly at approximately 30x coverage of the novel Weissela sp. bacterium and thus rapidly determine potential virulence factor genes of the bacterium.
