Genome Sequences of 11 Human Vaginal Actinobacteria Strains.

Genome Announc. 2016 Sep 29;4(5). pii: e00887-16. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00887-16.

Abstract

The composition of the vaginal microbiota is an important health determinant. Several members of the phylum Actinobacteria have been implicated in bacterial vaginosis, a condition associated with many negative health outcomes. Here, we present 11 strains of vaginal Actinobacteria (now available through BEI Resources) along with draft genome sequences.
