Eikenella corrodens is Gram-negative, facultatively anaerobic, and rod-shaped bacterium. It is a part of the normal human mucosal flora that can cause several systemic diseases such as endocarditis, liver abscess, and intracranial bacterial infection. E. corrodens KCOM 3110 (= JS217) was isolated from human subgingival dental plaque of periodontitis lesion. Here, we present the complete genome sequence of E. corrodens KCOM 3110.
