Escherichia coli sequence type 131 (ST131) is the most frequent antimicrobial-resistant lineage of E. coli, propagating extended-spectrum ß-lactamases (ESBL) worldwide. Recently, an alarming rate of increase in isolates of the sublineage C1/H30R-blaCTX-M-27 of ST131 in geographically distant countries was reported. Here, we present the complete genome sequence of the ST131 sublineage C1/H30R E. coli isolate harboring blaCTX-M-27 from Germany. Copyright © 2017 Ghosh et al.
