We present the draft genome sequences of six strains of Escherichia coli isolated from blood cultures collected from patients with sepsis. The strains were collected from two patient sets, those with a high severity of illness, and those with a low severity of illness. Each genome was sequenced by both Illumina and PacBio for comparison. ...[more]
Project description:Escherichia coli strain BL21 is one of the widely used bacterial hosts for high-level recombinant protein production and for other applications. Here, we present the complete genome sequence of a commercial version of the Escherichia coli BL21 strain.
Project description:Escherichia coli strain WG5 is a widely used host for phage detection, including somatic coliphages employed as standard ISO method 10705-1 (2000). Here, we present the complete genome sequence of a commercial E. coli WG5 strain.
Project description:We announce the availability of the 5.023-Mbp high-quality draft assembly of the Escherichia coli strain Nissle 1917 (serovar O6:K5:H1) genome. Short genomic segments from this important probiotic strain have been available in public databases, but the full genome sequence has remained inaccessible. Thus, high-coverage, whole genome sequencing of E. coli Nissle 1917 is presented herein. Reannotation and metabolic reconstruction will enable comparative genomics analysis and model-guided predictions of genetic manipulations leading to increased production of the K5 capsular polysaccharide known as N-acetyl heparosan, a precursor to the anticoagulant pharmaceutical heparin.
Project description:Escherichia coli represents the primary etiological agent responsible for urinary tract infections, one of the most common infections in humans. We report here the complete genome sequence of uropathogenic Escherichia coli strain CI5, a clinical pyelonephritis isolate used for studying pathogenesis.
Project description:Escherichia coli is one of the common inhabitants of the mammalian gastrointestinal track. We isolated a strain from an ob/ob mouse and performed whole-genome sequencing, which yielded a chromosome of ~5.1 Mb and three plasmids of ~160 kb, ~6 kb, and ~4 kb.
Project description:The genomes of many strains of Escherichia coli have been sequenced, as this organism is a classic model bacterium. Here, we report the genome sequence of Escherichia coli DH5?, which is resistant to a T4 bacteriophage (CCTCC AB 2015375), while its other homologous E. coli strains, such as E. coli BL21, DH10B, and MG1655, are not resistant to phage invasions. Thus, understanding of the genome of the DH5? strain, along with comparative analysis of its genome sequence along with other sequences of E. coli strains, may help to reveal the bacteriophage resistance mechanism of E. coli.
Project description:Escherichia coli is the most well-studied bacterium and a common colonizer of the lower mammalian gastrointestinal tract. We report here the complete genome sequence of the original Escherichia coli isolate, strain NCTC86, which was described by Theodor Escherich, for whom the genus is named.
Project description:Escherichia coli strain C600 is a prototypical K-12 derived laboratory strain which has been broadly used for molecular microbiology and bacterial physiology studies since its isolation in 1954. Here, we present the closed genome sequence of E. coli strain C600, retrieved from the American Type Culture Collection (ATCC 23724).
Project description:Escherichia coli is a common pathogen recovered from cystitis infections. In this report, we announce the draft genome sequence of strain E2 isolated from the urine specimen from a female patient in South Brazil. The genome assembly has 5,081,209 bp, a G+C content of 50.57%, and virulence factors associated with both enteroaggregative and uropathogenic E. coli strains.
Project description:Escherichia coli ATCC 11775 is a strain that was identified in 1941 and is now considered a type strain for the species. We present here the complete genome sequence for E. coli ATCC 11775. The genome was sequenced using Oxford Nanopore Technologies products and had 4,903,501 and 131,333 nucleotides of sequence length of the individual chromosome and plasmid, respectively.
