Bartonella florenciae sp. nov. strain R4T is the type strain of B. florenciae sp. nov., a new spe-cies within the genus Bartonella. This strain, whose genome is described here, was isolated in France from the spleen of the shrew Crocidura russula. B. florenciae is an aerobic, rod-shaped, Gram-negative bacterium. Here we describe the features of this organism, together with the complete genome sequence and its annotation. The 2,010,844 bp-long genome con-tains 1,909 protein-coding and 46 RNA genes, including two rRNA operons. © BY-SA.
