We sequenced the genome of a motile O1b Yersinia ruckeri field isolate from Chile, which is causing enteric redmouth disease (ERM) in vaccinated Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar). The draft genome has 3,775,486 bp, a G+C content of 47.1%, and is predicted to contain 3,406 coding sequences.
Outbreaks caused by Piscirickettsia salmonis are one of the major threats to the sustainability of the Chilean salmon industry. We report here the annotated draft genomes of two P. salmonis isolates recovered from different salmonid species. A comparative analysis showed that the number of virulence-associated secretion systems constitutes a main genomic… (More)
We detected human bocavirus in 89 (19.3%) of 462 fecal samples collected during 3 periods from 1985 through 2010 from children <5 years of age in Chile who were hospitalized with acute gastroenteritis. Our findings confirm the long-term circulation of human bocavirus in Chile.
