Draft genome sequences of five multilocus sequence types of nonencapsulated Streptococcus pneumoniae

Academic Article


  • © 2013 Keller et al. Nonencapsulated Streptococcus pneumoniae can colonize the human nasopharynx and cause conjunctivitis and otitis media. Different deletions in the capsular polysaccharide biosynthesis locus and different multilocus sequence types have been described for nonencapsulated strains. Draft genome sequences were generated to provide insight into the genomic diversity of these strains.
