Composite Long- and Short-Read Sequencing Delivers a Complete Genome Sequence of B04Sm5, a Reutericyclin- and Mutanocyclin-Producing Strain of Streptococcus mutans

Baker JL, Edlund A

PMID: 33214302


strain B04Sm5 was recently shown to inhibit the growth of neighboring commensal bacteria using reutericyclin, an acylated tetramic acid produced by the biosynthetic gene cluster. Here, a complete genome sequence of B04Sm5 is reported.
