We report here the complete genome sequence of the virulent strain JIP02/86 (ATCC 49511) of Flavobacterium psychrophilum, a widely distributed pathogen of wild and cultured salmonid fish. The genome consists of a 2,861,988–base pair (bp) circular chromosome with 2,432 predicted protein-coding genes. Among these predicted proteins, stress response mediators, gliding motility proteins, adhesins and many putative secreted proteases are probably involved in colonization, invasion and destruction of… CONTINUE READING
