[…] 99.56% identity with the available reference genome sequence of Staphylococcus haemolyticus JCSC1435 (NCBI reference sequence number NC_007168).Multilevel genome annotation was conducted by the NCBI Prokaryotic Genome Annotation Pipeline (PGAP) (). The complete genome consists of 2,528 genes, of which 2,445 were protein-coding genes, 19 rRNA subunits (7 genes for 5S, 6 for 16S, and 6 for 23S), 60 […]


Complete Genome Sequences of 10 Yersinia pseudotuberculosis Isolates Recovered from Wild Boars in Germany

Genome Announc
PMCID: 5946050
PMID: 29748399

[…] e PATRIC database ( (). SPAdes assembly calculations resulted in 10- to 20-fold sequence coverages per consensus sequence for all isolates. Genome annotation using the automated Prokaryotic Genome Annotation Pipeline (PGAP) of the NCBI-database ( revealed that the Y. pseudotuberculosis genomes exhibit only little variability […]

[…] on mode. A FASTQ file was generated using SMRT Analysis (v 2.3.0), and assembly was done with RS_HGAP_Assembly.3. The complete genome sequences were submitted to GenBank for annotation using the NCBI Prokaryotic Genome Annotation Pipeline.The E. coli RM14715 genome is composed of a 4,825,089-bp chromosome, encoding 4,947 coding sequences (CDSs), 22 rRNAs, and 88 tRNAs. The E. coli RM14723 genome i […]


Draft Genome Sequence of Staphylococcus aureus Strain HD1410, Isolated from a Persistent Nasal Carrier

Genome Announc
PMCID: 5946038
PMID: 29748411
DOI: 10.1128/genomeA.00411-18

[…] for length (>500 bp) and coverage (>10×) to ensure no errors and contamination in the draft genome. The contigs were then annotated using Prokka 1.12 (based on Genetic Code Table 11) () and the NCBI Prokaryotic Genome Annotation Pipeline.The multilocus sequence typing (MLST), VirulenceFinder, ResFinder, and PlasmidFinder ( databases were used to determine the sequen […]

[…] assembled de novo using the A5 pipeline (). Genome coverage of the obtained scaffolds was 45× on average. Scaffolds were submitted to GenBank for gene annotation, which was implemented using the NCBI Prokaryotic Genome Annotation Pipeline (PGAP) (). The genome-to-genome-distance calculator (GGDC) version 2.1 provided by DSMZ ( was used for genome-based species delineation. Form […]
