Genome Announc. 2016 Sep 29;4(5). pii: e00882-16. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00882-16.


The presence of bacteria in urine can pose significant risks during pregnancy. However, there are few reference genome strains for many common urinary bacteria. We isolated 12 urinary strains of Streptococcus, Staphylococcus, Citrobacter, Gardnerella, and Lactobacillus These strains and their genomes are now available to the research community.
