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… Expand
Genome sequencing of microbial species
TLDR
In this chapter, the impact of genome sequencing technologies in the field of microbiology is being explored. Expand
Sequencing a bacterial genome: an overview
TLDR
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. Expand
The Minimal Gene Complement of Mycoplasma genitalium
TLDR
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. Expand
The bacterial pan-genome and reverse vaccinology.
TLDR
The whole genome sequence of most human bacterial pathogens is available and the advent of next-generation sequencing technologies will result in a large number of sequenced isolates per pathogenic species, which will help to better inform the reverse vaccinology approach whereby vaccine candidates are identified and prioritized in silico based on genomic data. Expand
Microbial genome sequencing and pathogenesis.
TLDR
The year 1997 saw the publication of the complete nucleotide sequence of Helicobacter pylori and Escherichia coli, and the high proportion of open reading frames that have no known function. Expand

TLDR
Almost 5 years ago, an international consortium of sequencing centers and funding agencies was formed to sequence the genome of the human malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum and recently developed plans for the annotation and analysis of the complete genome sequence. Expand
Metabolism and evolution of Haemophilus influenzae deduced from a whole-genome comparison with Escherichia coli
TLDR
By comparing proteins encoded by the two bacterial genomes, it is shown that extensive gene shuffling and variation in the extent of gene paralogy are major trends in bacterial evolution; this comparison has also allowed us to deduce crucial aspects of the largely uncharacterized metabolism of H. influenzae.

Position-Based Scanning for Comparative Genomics and Identification of Genetic Islands in Haemophilus influenzae Type b
TLDR
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.

TLDR
The complete DNA sequence of the genome of vaccinia virus has been determined and several similarities to proteins of known function were discerned, but the function of the majority of proteins encoded by these open reading frames is as yet undetermined. Expand

Systematic sequencing of the Escherichia coli genome: analysis of the 0- 2.4 min region
TLDR
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.

A genetic locus implicated in the development of competence in Haemophilus influenzae Rd has been previously mapped to a 12.8-kb PstI region of the chromosome and it was concluded that at least three of the genes should be involved in transformation. Expand

Complementary DNA sequencing: expressed sequence tags and human genome project
TLDR
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.
