Draft Genome Sequence of New Vancomycin-Resistant Enterococcus faecium Sequence Type 1421 Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • ABSTRACT The spread of vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecium (VREfm) has become a challenge to health care infection control worldwide. In 2015, a marked increase in VREfm isolation was detected in acute public hospitals in Tasmania. We report here the draft whole-genome sequence of a newly designated VREfm sequence type, sequence type 1421 (ST1421).
