Improved draft genome of Pseudomonas aeruginosa MH19
What is it about?
Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a pathogenic bacterium that causes severe diseases. We determined a draft version of the DNA sequence of Pseudomonas aeruginosa MH19. This is a strain of Pseudomonas aeruginosa that caused severe hospial-acquired infections. Based on the DNA sequence, more than 6000 genes have been predicted, and information of the DNA sequence and predicted genes has been made available in public scientific databases.
Why is it important?
Information related to the DNA sequence and genes of Pseudomonas aeruginosa MH19 may help researchers to better understand how hospital-acquired infections can emerge.
