    Abstract

    Capnocytophaga canimorsus is a commensal Gram-negative bacterium, originally isolated from a dog's mouth, that causes septicemia in humans. C. canimorsus has the unusual ability to feed on host cells, including phagocytes. This capacity depends on surface-exposed glycan-foraging systems. Here we present the first complete genome sequence of a C. canimorsus strain (Cc5).
