The Yersinia pestis Pestoides A whole genome shotgun (WGS) project has the project accession ACNT00000000. This version of the project (01) has the accession number ACNT01000000, and consists of sequences ACNT01000001-ACNT01000037.
Yersinia pestis Pestoides A is an atypical enzootic or nonepidemic 'pestoides' variant of Yersinia pestis, probably acquired by the US from the USSR in the 1960s or 1970s. The strain is closely related to Pestoides B-D; these strains are subspecies altaica, versus the previously sequenced Pestoides F strain which is subspecies caucasica. These atypical Y. pestis variants are considered important for understanding the evolution of acute virulence because they share characteristics of close relative Yersinia enterocolitica, a nonlethal enteric pathogen. Sanger sequencing data was collected from a library with an average insert size of 5931 bp (30529 reads). An additional 2500 454 pyrosequencing reads were collected, along with approximately 4170 primer walk finishing reads. Misassemblies may have occurred in the sequence where 454 data is not verified by Sanger paired end reads or PCR. Genome sequencing, assembly, and finishing were performed by the Department of Energy's Joint Genome Institute (DOE-JGI), in Walnut Creek, CA and at Los Alamos National Laboratory, Los Alamos, NM. Annotation and database submission were carried out by the Enteropathogen Resource Integration Center, Madison, WI (ERIC http://www.ericbrc.org/portal/eric), a Bioinformatics Resource Center supported by the NIH/NIAID. Funding for sequencing was provided by the Intelligence Technology Innovation Center; funding for the annotation was provided by the NIH/NIAID.

The NIAID funded Bioinformatics Resource Center PathoSystems Resource Integration Center (PATRIC; http://patricbrc.vbi.vt.edu/) is responsible for annotation updates of this record.
