We report the first draft genome sequence of an Enterococcus faecium
sequence type 18 (ST18) strain isolated from a tuberculosis patient in Africa. The genome
is comprised of 3,202,539 bp, 501 contigs, 37.70% GC content, 3,202 proteinencoding
genes, and 61 RNA genes. The resistome and virulome of this important
pathogen are presented herein.
