Draft Genome Sequence of a Meningitic Isolate of Cronobacter sakazakii Clonal Complex 4, Strain 8399 Thumbnail


Abstract

The Cronobacter sakazakii clonal lineage defined as clonal complex 4 (CC4), composed of nine sequence types, is associated with
severe cases of neonatal meningitis. To date, only closely related C. sakazakii sequence type 4 (ST4) strains have been sequenced.
C. sakazakii strain 8399, isolated from a case of neonatal meningitis, was sequenced as the first non-ST4 C. sakazakii strain.
