Complete closed genome sequences of Mannheimia haemolytica serotypes A1 and A6 isolated from cattle. Genome Announcements. 1(3):e00188-13. DOI: 10.1128/GENOMEA.00188-13.
Interpretive Summary: Advanced DNA sequencing and computer algorithms were used to reveal, for the first time, the entire unbroken genetic code of the economically important livestock pathogen Mannhemimia haemolytica.
Technical Abstract: Mannhemimia haemolytica is a respiratory pathogen affecting cattle and related ruminants worldwide. M. haemolytica is commonly associated with Bovine Respiratory Disease Complex (BRDC), a polymicrobial, multifactorial disease. We present the first two complete closed genomes of this species using an automated assembly pipeline requiring no manual finishing.
