Abstract

The identification by conventional methods of viridans streptococcal species, which are rarely encountered clinically, requires confirmation by genomic methods. We characterized a strain of responsible for infective endocarditis by sequencing both the 16S rRNA and the manganese-dependent superoxide dismutase genes.
