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.

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 ...
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. ...
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 ...
