Draft Genome sequences of Campylobacter jejuni strains isolated from poultry. Genome Announcements. 9:e01272-19. https://doi.org/10.1128/MRA.01272.19.
Interpretive Summary: We have sequenced four wild-type Campylobacter jejuni strains isolated from broiler chickens. The average genome size was 1,622,170 bp with 1667 to 1761 coding sequences. The GC content was 31% in all the genomes. Moreover, we identified multiple genes encoding for motility, intestinal colonization, toxin production, stress tolerance and multidrug resistance in all strains.
Technical Abstract: Four wild-type Campylobacter jejuni strains isolated from cecal contents of broiler chickens were sequenced. The average genome size was 1,622,170 bp with 1667 to 1761 coding sequences and 47-51 RNAs. Multiple genes encoding for motility, intestinal colonization, toxin production, stress tolerance and multidrug resistance were present in all strains.
