[Genome Research Limited]

The Sanger Institute was funded by the Wellcome Trust, and CNRS, to sequence the genome of Serratia marcescens strain Db11, in collaboration with Dr. Jonathan Ewbank of the Centre d'Immunologie de Marseille Luminy.

Published Genome Data

We have determined the genome sequence of Serratia marcescens strain Db11. It consists of a single circular chromosome of 5,113,802 bp with a G+C content of 59.51%.

Shotgun and assembly data from this project are available from or FTP site.

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.
