dc.description.abstract This report presents genomic data on sequence reads and draft genomes of Bacillus anthracis isolates from anthrax outbreaks in animals in an endemic region of South Africa as well as genotyping of the strains using canonical single nucleotide polymorphisms (canSNPs). It is derived from an article entitle “Phylogenomic structure of B. anthracis strains in the Northern Cape Province, South Africa revealed novel single nucleotide polymorphisms”. Whole genome sequencing (WGS) of twenty-three B. anthracis strains isolated during 1998 and 2009 anthrax outbreaks in the Northern Cape Province (NCP), as well as a strain from Botswana (6102_6B) and one from Namibia-South Africa transfrontier conservation area (Sendlingsdrift, 6461_SP2) were obtained using both the HiSeq 2500 and MiSeq Illumina platforms. Mismatch amplification mutation assay (melt-MAMA) qPCR were used to identify the canSNP genotypes within the global population of B. anthracis. DNA sequencing data is available at NCBI Sequence Read Archive and GenBank database under accession N0. PRJNA580142 and PRJNA510736 respectively. A phylogenetic tree and CanSNP typing profiles of the isolates are presented within this article. en_ZA
