Abstract

An increasing number of pertussis-like cases are attributed to the emergent pathogen Bordetella holmesii. The genomes of 9 clinical isolates show that they are clonal, lack the virulence factors encoded by B. pertussis, and are more similar to nonpertussis bordetellae. New markers for B. holmesii can be developed using these sequences.
