Complete genome sequence of Providencia stuartii clinical isolate MRSN 2154

J Bacteriol. 2012 Jul;194(14):3736-7. doi: 10.1128/JB.00615-12.


Here we present the complete genome sequence of Providencia stuartii MRSN 2154, isolated from an Afghan national. P. stuartii is a Gram-negative bacillus capable of causing infections in a wide variety of human tissues. Because Providencia readily acquires plasmids bearing drug resistance loci, it is of growing clinical significance.
