Genome Announc. 2013 Dec 5;1(6):e00988-13. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00988-13.

Abstract

We report the complete genome sequence, including five complete plasmid sequences, of Escherichia coli ST131 isolate JJ1886. The isolate was obtained in 2007 in the United States from a patient with fatal urosepsis and belongs to the virulent, CTX-M-15-producing H30-Rx sublineage.
