Abstract/Summary

Sequence type (ST) 38 is considered a UPEC/EAEC hybrid associated with multi-drug resistance and urinary tract infections (UTIs). The draft genome sequence of UEC59 from a female in Pakistan revealed a 5324938 bp genome with 5386 CDS, 86 tRNA genes, and multiple antibiotic resistance genes (blaTEM-1, CMY-2, sul1, sul2, dfrA17, tetA, mphA) and mobile elements (int1, two transposons, 30 IS elements, one ICE, four plasmids, five prophages), along with many virulence genes.
