Microbiol Resour Announc. 2019 Sep 26;8(39):e00770-19. doi: 10.1128/MRA.00770-19.


Streptococcus canis is a β-hemolytic bacterium that can cause invasive infections in animals and humans. Here, we report a draft genome sequence of S. canis strain OT1, isolated from a female dog owner with bacteremia without a dog bite. The draft genome comprises 2,030,366 bp in 48 contigs.
