Abstract

We report the complete genome sequence and analysis of an invasive Corynebacterium diphtheriae check for this species in other resources strain that caused endocarditis in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It was selected for sequencing on the basis of the current relevance of nontoxigenic strains for public health. The genomic information was explored in the context of diversity, plasticity and genetic relatedness with other contemporary strains.

Keywords
