This PNAS scholarly article reports the genome sequence of V. fischeri ES114, which enters into a mutualistic symbiosis in the light organ of the bobtail squid, Euprymna scolopes. V. fischeri belongs to Vibrionaceae, a large family of marine -proteobacteria that includes several dozen species known to engage in a diversity of beneficial or pathogenic interactions with animal tissue. Analysis of this sequence reveals surprising parallels with V. cholerae and other pathogens. A subscription to PNAS may be required to access the full text of this article.
