Complete Genome Sequence of Clostridioides difficile Ribotype 255 Strain Mta-79, Assembled Using Oxford Nanopore and Illumina Sequencing

Microbiol Resour Announc. 2019 Oct 17;8(42):e00935-19. doi: 10.1128/MRA.00935-19.


Hybrid de novo assembly of Illumina/Nanopore sequence data produced a complete circular sequence of the chromosome for a Clostridioides difficile ribotype 255 (RT255) isolate from an elderly patient with recurrent C. difficile infection (CDI). This provides a high-quality representative sequence for the RT255 lineage.
