Leptospirosis is one of the most common zoonotic diseases in the world, resulting in high morbidity and mortality in humans and affecting global livestock production. Most infections are caused by either L.borgpetersenii or L.interrogans, bacteria that vary in their distribution in nature and rely on different modes of transmission. L.borgpetersenii uses a host-to-host mode of transmission, whereas L.interrogans is usually acquired from contaminated surface water.

Leptospira biflexa is a free-living, saprophytic, aquatic spirochete. Its sequence will provide insights the differences between saprophytic and pathogenic species. L. biflexa serovar Patoc strain Patoc1, was initially isolated from stream water. Two strains that have been maintained separately for 17 years have been sequenced. One was maintained in the collection of the National Reference Center of Leptospira (Institut Pasteur, Paris, France) and designated the Paris strain; the second strain was derived from the same source but kept in the culture collection at the National Animal Disease Center (NADC), Ames, IA since 1990 and is designated the Ames strain (LEPBA).
