Published Genome Data
The genome of Legionella pneumophila was sequenced using paired-end 454 FLX pyrosequencing and assembled using the 454/Roche Newbler assembly program into 274 contigs. These contigs were scaffolded using paired read into 11 scaffolds. Several contig gaps were closed using PCR and Sanger sequencing in conjunction with manual examination of the individual 454 reads in Consed. Unassembled contigs of less than 300bp were removed from the end of the assembly. This gave a total sequence length of 3,473,547 bp assembled into 145 contigs in 4 scaffolds plus 14 small contigs (114 – 3270 bp) which could not be scaffolded.
The genome has been sequenced in collaboration with Prof. Gad Frankel (Imperial College) and is available from the EMBL/GenBank databases with accession number FR687201.

Data Use Statement
This sequencing centre plans on publishing the completed and annotated sequences in a peer-reviewed journal as soon as possible. Permission of the principal investigator should be obtained before publishing analyses of the sequence/open reading frames/genes on a chromosome or genome scale. See our data sharing policy.
