Volume 8, no. 1, e01508-18, 2019, https://doi.org/10.1128/MRA.01508-18. We retract this article. The sequence was submitted to the NCBI GenBank (accession no. KR083866) on 13 April 2015 by the primary author, Mohamed E. Megahed, National Institute of Oceanography and Fisheries (NIOF), Suez, Egypt. Unfortunately Dr. Megahed has been instructed by NIOF, Suez, Egypt, not to share the raw sequence data under the Law No. 82/2002 and via a declaration of the Deputy Minister of Agriculture & Land Reclamation. Due to this inability to share the raw sequence data, we are retracting the article. PUBLISHER’S NOTE A concerned reader brought to the attention of the American Society for Microbiology (ASM) and Microbiology Resource Announcements (MRA) that the sequences described in https://doi.org/10.1128/MRA.00809-18 and https://doi.org/ 10.1128/MRA.01508-18 may have been duplicates. During the investigative process, it was identified that the authors were not able to provide or share the raw, underlying data to support these MRA publications. For these reasons, ASM requested Author Retractions of these announcements.
