Klebsiella pneumoniae is a nosocomial pathogen with clinical importance due to its increasing resistance to carbapenems and colistin. Here, we report the genome sequences of eight colistin-resistant K. pneumoniae strains which might help in understanding the molecular mechanism of the species. The sequence data indicate genomes of ~5.2 to 5.4 Mb, along with… (More)
Shigella spp. are a major diarrhoeal disease pathogen worldwide and can cause considerable morbidity and mortality. Notably, limited genome data are available for serogroups/sub-serogroups of Shigella. Here we report the whole-genome shotgun sequences of 23 non-typeable Shigella from stool specimens that biochemically resembled Shigella spp. but were… (More)
Resistance to colistin is a major threat that limits therapeutic choices for treating carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae infections. Herein, we report the draft genome sequences of two colistin-resistant K. pneumoniae isolates (BA41763 and B6753). The sequence data indicate that BA41763 and B6753 contain genomes of ~5.9 and 5.7 Mb in size with… (More)
Here we report the whole-genome shotgun sequence of six methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) showing reduced susceptibility to both vancomycin and teicoplanin. The typical Indian community-acquired MRSA (CA-MRSA) clone ST772-MRSA-V-t657 was the most common genotype (3/6; 50%), followed by ST672-MRSA-IV (2/6; 33%) and ST22-MRSA-IV (1/6; 17%).… (More)
It is not always possible to identify Shigella serogroups/serotypes by biochemical properties alone. Specific identification requires serotyping. Occasionally, isolates that resemble Shigella spp. biochemically, but are non-agglutinable with available antisera, have been observed. Several mechanisms have been reported to limit the efficiency of the… (More)
Extremely drug-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa strains causing severe infections have become a serious concern across the world. Here, we report draft genome sequence of P. aeruginosa with an extremely drug-resistant profile isolated from a patient with community-acquired bloodstream infection in India.
Antimicrobial resistance among hypervirulent Klebsiella pneumoniae is increasingly reported. Here, we report the draft genome sequence of a hypervirulent K. pneumoniae strain isolated from a neonate with sepsis belonging to novel sequence type 2318 (ST2318).
We report here the draft genome sequences of 11 heteroresistant vancomycin-intermediate Staphylococcus aureus (hVISA) strains from bloodstream infection. All strains harbor mutations in vraSR, graSR, walKR, and/or tcaRAB and are often implicated as the frequently mutated candidate genes in hVISA phenotypes.
