Reference genome for the Human Microbiome Project

Identifiers: SRA: SRP000374
BioProject: PRJNA28661
WUGSC: Edwardsiella tarda ATCC 23685
Study Type: 
Whole Genome Sequencing
Abstract: <P><B><I>Edwardsiella tarda</I> ATCC 23685</B>. <I>Edwardsiella tarda</I> ATCC 23685 was isolated from human feces. This strain is part of a comprehensive, sequence-based survey of members of the normal human gut microbiota. A joint effort of the WU-GSC and the Center for Genome Sciences at Washington University School of Medicine, the purpose of this survey is to provide the general scientific community with a broad view of the gene content of 100 representatives of the major divisions represented in the intestine's microbial community. This information should provide a frame of reference for analyzing metagenomic studies of the human gut microbiome.
