Progressive atrophic rhinitis in domestic pigs is caused by Pasteurella multocida strains containing toxA, which encodes a heat-labile toxin. Here, by comparative analyses of the genomes of many strains, it has been shown that toxA is sparsely distributed in P. multocida. Also, toxA is usually associated with a prophage, and some strains contain an orthologous prophage but not toxA.
The Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) strain LVP-7 was isolated in India a few years ago. Here, we present its draft genome and identify key features that could explain its virulence properties. We are currently improving genome assembly using long-read sequencing and analyzing the transcriptome of this MRSA strain
