Serratia is a genus of Gram negative, facultatively anaerobic bacteria of the Enterobacteriaceae family, thus meaning it is related to Escherichia and Shigella, Salmonella and Yersinia.
The most common species, Serratia marcescens is a broad host-range pathogen, and is also capable of opportunistic infections of humans.
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%.
The fully annotated genome is available from the EMBL/GenBank databases with accession number HG326223.
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.
