Genome sequence for Listeria Monocytogenes Scott 4B

Luchansky, John
Institute for Genomic Research
Start date
End date
To generate a complete genome sequence and plasmids for Listeria monocytogenes Scott A strain, serotype 4b.

A Certified Listeria monocytogenes Scott A strain, serotype 4b will be obtained through the Public Health Services Laboratory, US (PHLS) Master Culture Collection. iochemical, morphological, and molecular confirmation of the strain will be conducted before submission to TIGR. This strain will be used to develop a complete annotated genome sequence, i.e., orf's, rDNA, tRNA etc, genome feastures and repeats as in a Genbank submission, linear genome representation and metabolic map (e.g. as described for Vibrio cholera in Nature 406: 477, 2000). This will be accomplished in two Phases: Phase I completion of 8x coverage; Phase II closure of the genome sequence, annotation and analysis.
