Microbiol Resour Announc. 2019 Oct 3;8(40):e00882-19. doi: 10.1128/MRA.00882-19.


We present the complete genome sequence of an enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli O111:H8 strain. This strain was isolated from a hemolytic-uremic syndrome patient and was responsible for a large outbreak associated with the consumption of raw beef in 2011.
