Interpretive summary: Arcobacter butzleri is a member of a bacterial group that also contains the established pathogens Campylobacter jejuni and Helicobacter pylori. This organism has been isolated from water, food animals and multiple food sources and has also been associated with human illness. A. butzleri strain 7h1h originated from a clinically healthy dairy cow in Cheshire, North-West England, UK. To further understand this organism, the complete DNA sequence of the strain 7h1h chromosome was determined. Genes were identified and compared to those found in two other A. butzleri strains, including one isolated from a human patient.
