Abstract

Streptococcus pneumoniae is a major pathogen causing bacterial infection in the middle ear of humans. We previously used S. pneumoniae strain ST556, a low-passage 19F isolate from an otitis media patient, to perform a whole-genome screen for ear infection-associated genes in a chinchilla model. This report presents the complete genome sequence of ST556. The genome sequence will provide information complementary to the experimental data from our genetic study of this strain.
