Draft Genome Sequence of Raoultella planticola, Isolated from River Water

Genome Announc. 2014 Oct 16;2(5):e01061-14. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.01061-14.


We isolated Raoultella planticola from a river water sample, which was phenotypically indistinguishable from Escherichia coli on MI agar. The genome sequence of R. planticola was determined to gain information about its metabolic functions contributing to its false positive appearance of E. coli on MI agar. We report the first whole genome sequence of Raoultella planticola.
