Porphyromonas gingivalis is associated with oral and systemic diseases. Strain-specific P. gingivalis invasion phenotypes have been correlated with disease presentation in infected laboratory animals. Here, we present the genome sequence of AJW4, a minimally invasive strain, with a single contig of 2,372,492 bp and a G+C content of 48.27%.
