Delannoy CMJ, Zadoks RN, Lainson FA, Ferguson H, Crumlish M, Turnbull J & Fontaine MC (2012) Draft genome sequence of a nonhemolytic fish-pathogenic streptococcus agalactiae strain. Journal of Bacteriology, 194 (22), pp. 6341-6342. https://doi.org/10.1128/JB.01552-12
Streptococcus agalactiae is a significant Gram-positive bacterial pathogen of terrestrial and aquatic animals. A subpopulation of nonhemolytic strains which appear to be pathogenic only for poikilotherms exists. We report here the first draft genome sequence of a nonhemolytic S. agalactiae isolate recovered from a diseased fish.
