Abstract

Borrelia miyamotoi is a newly recognized agent of human disease.

B. miyamotoi strain LB-2001, an isolate from the tick Ixodes scapularis,
was propagated in mice.

The sequence of the chromosome was determined by
next-generation sequencing of DNA isolated from whole blood. The
sequence established that B. miyamotoi is a relapsing fever group
species.
