Genome Announc. 2014 Jan 9;2(1):e01120-13. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.01120-13.


First identified in 1982 as a human pathogen, enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli of the O157:H7 serotype is a major cause of food-borne acquired human infections. Here, we report the genome sequence of the first known strain of this serotype isolated in the United States.
