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.
The non-genealogical transfer of genetic information between prokaryotes is a frequent
and omnipresent event. The acquisition of foreign genomic segments may aid organisms
in adaptation to novel or extreme habitats with ...
Isolation of complete coding sequences and regulatory regions is critical for the complete characterization of a gene. Efficient methods to obtain complete genomic or regulatory is important in the process of isolation. ...

Pantoea ananatis is ubiquitously found in the environment and causes disease on a
wide range of plant hosts. By contrast, its sister species, Pantoea stewartii subsp.
stewartii is the host-specific causative agent of the ...
