Early view of the Porphyromonas gingivalis genome

The Institute for Genomic Research (TIGR), in Rockville, Maryland, has sequenced the genome of Porphyromonas gingivalis, a bacterium associated with gum disease in adults. P. gingivalis is the first oral disease-causing microbe to be completely sequenced, and its genome contains about 2.2 million base pairs. A link to a pre-publication version of the genome sequence is available on TIGR's Comprehensive Microbial Resource home page.
