Draft Genome Sequence Analysis of Multidrug-Resistant Escherichia coli Strains Isolated in 2013 From Humans and Chickens in Nigeria

Genome Announc. 2017 Oct 5;5(40):e01073-17. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.01073-17.


Here, we present the draft genome sequences of nine multidrug-resistant Escherichia coli strains isolated from humans (n = 6) and chicken carcasses (n = 3) from Lagos, Nigeria, in 2013. Multiple extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL) genes were identified in these isolates.
