Abstract

Respiratory disease caused by Mannheimia haemolytica is a major concern in the cattle and small stock industry worldwide. This problem arises due to the interaction of numerous contributing factors, including physical stresses associated with weaning, shipment, inclement weather, and overcrowding coupled with viral and bacterial infections. The whole genome of M. haemolytica strain Mh10517 was analyzed using an Illumina MiSeq high-throughput sequencing platform. The genome size is 2.67 Mb with 2,879 predicted gene sequences. The availability of this genome sequence will advance studies on various aspects of the biology of M. haemolytica in Africa and the world at large.
