Abstract:

Here we report the genome sequence of Yersinia pestis strain Cadman, an attenuated strain lacking the pgm locus. Y. pestis is the causative agent of plague and generally must be worked with under BSL-3 conditions. However, strains lacking the pgm locus are considered safe to work with under BSL-2 conditions.
