Interpretive Summary: Vibrio coralliilyticus is a naturally-occurring marine bacterium which infects and kills both corals and larval shellfish. This paper announces the publication of the DNA sequences of three V. coralliilyticus strains known to infect and kill larval oysters. These strains were associated with diseased oysters in Hawaii, Oregon and New Jersey. This sequencing provides scientists with the means to further explore genes responsible for the infectivity of V. coralliilyticus in shellfish.

Technical Abstract: Reported here are the draft genomes of three Vibrio coralliilyticus isolates RE87, AIC-7, and 080116A. Each strain was isolated in association with diseased oyster larvae in commercial aquaculture systems. These draft genomes will be useful for further studies in understanding the genomic features contributing to V. coralliilyticus pathogenicity.
