Abstract

Cockroaches harbor the obligate flavobacterial endosymbiont Blattabacterium sp., which resides within the host's bacteriocytes and can recycle ammonia and urea nitrogenous wastes into amino acids for the host. We report the complete genome sequence of the Blattabacterium sp. associated with the giant roach Blaberus giganteus.
