Genome sequence of avian Escherichia coli strain IHIT25637, an extraintestinal pathogenic E. coli strain of ST131 encoding colistin resistance determinant MCR-1

  • Sequence type 131 (ST131) is one of the predominant Escherichia coli lineages among extraintestinal pathogenic E. coli (ExPEC) that causes a variety of diseases in humans and animals and frequently shows multidrug resistance. Here, we report the first genome sequence of an ST131-ExPEC strain from poultry carrying the plasmid-encoded colistin resistance gene mcr-1.
