Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a frequent human pathogen that increasingly causes chronic infections of nonhealing wounds. Here we present the 6.8 Mb draft genome of strain WS394, a multidrug-resistant chronic ulcer isolate that exhibited outstanding high cell cytotoxicity despite defective secretion of exotoxin U, suggesting a habitat-dependent adaptation… (More)
Chikungunya virus (CHIKV) strain DH130003 was isolated from a traveler with Chikungunya fever returning from Bali to Germany. Although strains of the east-central/south African lineage bearing the A226V mutation have predominated in most parts of Asia since 2005, CHIKV DH130003 belongs to the Asian lineage.
Pseudomonas aeruginosa is an opportunistic pathogen that typically infects patients with a compromised immune defense. Here, we present the improved 6.5-Mb draft genome of strain WS136, an ExoS-positive and ExoU-negative highly cytotoxic chronic wound isolate recovered from pyoderma gangrenosum of a patient who received bone marrow transplantation.
