Abstract

Complete genome sequence of Chlamydia avium PV 4360/2, isolated from a feral pigeon in Italy.

Abstract

We report here the whole-genome sequence of a Chlamydia avium isolate recovered from a feral pigeon in 1999 in Italy. Only one complete genome of a C. avium strain has been published so far. Future comparative analyses could provide valuable insights on the genomic evolution of the pathogen.
