We report the whole-genome sequence of a tdh- and trh-negative Vibrio parahaemolyticus strain, V110, from shrimp. The major difference of V110 from clinical strains was its lack of the type III secretion system T3SS2, a key component of virulence. Further sequence comparison can shed light on the pathogenesis of V. parahaemolyticus.
