Draft Genome Sequence of Streptococcus suis S10, a Virulent Strain Used in Experimental Pig Infections

Gaiser, R.A.; Zomer, A.L.; Wells, J.M.; Baarlen, P. van

Summary

Here, we report the draft whole-genome sequence of Streptococcus suis strain S10, isolated from the tonsils of a healthy pig. S. suis S10 belongs to the highly virulent serotype 2, which includes isolates that cause infectious diseases, including meningitis, in pigs and human. The genome contains a complete prophage that encodes a candidate virulence gene.
