Complete Genome Sequences of Two Helicobacter pylori Strains from a Canadian Arctic Aboriginal Community. uri icon


  • We report here the complete genome sequences of two Amerind Helicobacter pylori strains from Aklavik, Northwest Territories, Canada. One strain contains extra iron-cofactored urease genes and ~140 rearrangements in its chromosome relative to other described strains (typically differing from one another by <10 rearrangements), suggesting that it represents a novel lineage of H.¬†pylori.
