Genome Sequences of 11 Shiga Toxin-Producing Escherichia coli Strains

Genome Announc. 2015 May 14;3(3):e00418-15. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00418-15.

Abstract

Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) strains are a common cause of both sporadic infection and outbreaks of enteric disease in humans. Here, we present draft genome sequences of 11 STEC strains of different serotypes (O145, O121, O26, O177, and O-type unknown), that have been isolated from patients with enteric disease of various degrees of severity, in the years 2001 to 2014 at St. Olavs Hospital in Trondheim, Norway.
