Interpretive Summary: Aeromonas species cause disease in fish. This paper describes the closed genome of an Aeromonas veronii strain that can cause disease in fish and is used to create mutants in suspected virulence factors. In addition, this paper describes the mutations that are present in the derivatives of this strain that are used to create mutants. Closed genomes are an important contribution because most genomes consist of many fragments and can be incomplete.
Technical Abstract: Aeromonas veronii strain Hm21 was isolated from the medicinal leech Hirudo verbana and is used for genetic studies. We present here the 4.71-Mbp genome with a 56-kb plasmid and identify the mutations present in strains commonly used for genetic engineering.
