Pseudomonas aeruginosa MH27 draft genome

What is it about?

Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a pathogenic bacterium that causes disease in humans and animals. We determined a draft version of the genomic DNA sequence of the Pseudomonas aeruginosa MH27, a strain of Pseudomonas aeruginosa that can affect the urinary system of humans. Based on the total 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 MH27 may help researchers to better understand how infections of the urinary system can emerge.
