Genome Sequences of Two Multidrug-Resistant Acinetobacter baumannii Clinical Strains Isolated from Southern India

Genome Announc. 2015 Sep 10;3(5):e01010-15. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.01010-15.


Acinetobacter baumannii is an emerging nosocomial pathogen causing infections worldwide. In this study, we determined the genome sequences of two multidrug-resistant A. baumannii clinical strains isolated from a hospital in southern India. Genome analyses indicate that both the strains harbor numerous horizontally transferred genetic elements and antibiotic resistance cassettes.
