Abstract

Herein we present the draft genome sequence and annotation of "Candidatus Rickettsia asemboensis" strain NMRCii. "Ca. Rickettsia asemboensis" is phylogenetically related to but distinct from the flea-borne spotted fever pathogen Rickettsia felis. "Ca. Rickettsia asemboensis" was initially identified in and subsequently isolated from Ctenocephalides cat and dog fleas from Kenya.
