An approach for genome analysis based on sequencing and assembly of unselected pieces of DNA from the whole chromosome has been applied to obtain the complete nucleotide sequence (1,830,137 base pairs) of the genome from the bacterium Haemophilus influenzae Rd. This approach eliminates the need for initial mapping efforts and is therefore applicable to the vast array of microbial species for which genome maps are unavailable. The H. influenzae Rd genome sequence (Genome Sequence DataBase… 
Sequencing a bacterial genome: an overview
In this chapter, strategies of how to sequence genomic DNA as well as how to assemble and annotate a bacterial genome are reviewed and discussed.
The Minimal Gene Complement of Mycoplasma genitalium
Comparison of the Mycoplasma genitalium genome to that of Haemophilus influenzae suggests that differences in genome content are reflected as profound differences in physiology and metabolic capacity between these two organisms.

Position-Based Scanning for Comparative Genomics and Identification of Genetic Islands in Haemophilus influenzae Type b
Application of a PCR-based scanning procedure to compare the genome of a virulent type b (Hib) strain with that of the laboratory-passaged Rd KW20 strain, for which a complete genome sequence is available, provides a rapid means to comparing the genomes of phenotypically diverse bacterial strains once the genome sequence of one representative strain has been determined.
Genome sequencing and annotation.
The availability of complete microbial genome sequences enormously facilitates experimental molecular investigations of the respective organisms by providing complete lists of genes, their genetic
Genome Sequencing of Steroid Producing Bacteria Using Ion Torrent Technology and a Reference Genome.
This chapter describes the strategy that allowed the complete genome sequencing of Mycobacterium neoaurum NRRL B-3805, an industrial strain exploited for steroid production, using Ion Torrent sequencing reads and the genome of a close strain as the reference.
The Value of Complete Microbial Genome Sequencing (You Get What You Pay For)
Since the publication of the complete Haemophilus influenzae genome sequence in July 1995 (4), the field of microbiology has been one of the largest beneficiaries of the breakthroughs in genomics and
The Streptococcus pyogenes Genome Sequencing Project
The nucleotide sequence of the SF370 emm gene was determined and found to be identical to that of Lancefield strain T1/19/8, a well characterized M1 strain that was originally isolated from a wound infection and possesses the same RFLP pattern found in strains associated with severe invasive disease.


Frequency and distribution of DNA uptake signal sequences in the Haemophilus influenzae Rd genome.
The naturally transformable, Gram-negative bacterium Haemophilus influenzae Rd preferentially takes up DNA of its own species by recognizing a 9-base pair sequence, 5'-AAGTGCGGT, carried in multiple
Systematic sequencing of the Escherichia coli genome: analysis of the 0- 2.4 min region
A contiguous 111,402-nucleotide sequence corresponding to the 0 to 2.4 min region of the E. coli chromosome was determined as a first step to complete structural analysis of the genome and a number of novel genes were found whose predicted protein sequences showed significant homology with known proteins from various organisms.
Bacillus subtilis genome project: cloning and sequencing of the 97 kb region from 325° to 333deg;
The cloning and sequencing of a segment of 97 kb of contiguous DNA that led to the identification of the products of new B. subtilis genes, e.g. galactokinase and an operon involved in thiamine biosynthesis.
Sequencing the yeast genome: An international achievement
The sequencing enterprise from its beginnings is traced, outlining the intentions, the organisation, and the achievements so far, emphasising the follow‐on research into the evolution of primitive karyotypes, and, more particularly, into the nature of novel genes revealed during sequencing.
Complementary DNA sequencing: expressed sequence tags and human genome project
Automated partial DNA sequencing was conducted on more than 600 randomly selected human brain complementary DNA (cDNA) clones to generate expressed sequence tags (ESTs), which will facilitate the tagging of most human genes in a few years at a fraction of the cost of complete genomic sequencing.
Complete nucleotide sequence of Saccharomyces cerevisiae chromosome VIII.
The complete nucleotide sequence of Saccharomyces cerevisiae chromosome VIII reveals that it contains 269 predicted or known genes (300 base pairs or larger); of the 210 novel genes, 65 are predicted to encode proteins that are similar to other proteins of known or predicted function.
Construction of DNA recognition sites active in Haemophilus transformation.
It is found that the addition of the 11-bp sequence to a DNA fragment is necessary and sufficient for preferential uptake of that fragment, however, plasmid DNAs containing this sequence may vary as much as 48-fold in uptake activity, and this variation correlates with the A+T-richness of the DNA flanking the11-mer.
