Draft Genome Sequence of Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae, Isolated from a Canine Case of Diskospondylitis. Academic Article uri icon


  • This is the draft genome of an Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae strain isolated from the blood of a canine. Initial 16S ribosomal DNA amplification identified the isolate as belonging to the Erysipelothrix genus but could not elucidate the species due to previous misidentification of E. rhusiopathiae and E. tonsillarum The species identification was confirmed by whole-genome sequencing.
