We previously described the novel qnrVC6 and blaIMP-45carrying megaplasmid pBM413. This study aimed to investigate the complete genome of multidrug-resistance P. aeruginosa Guangzhou-Pae617, a clinical isolate from the sputum of a patient who was suffering from respiratory disease in Guangzhou, China.The genome was sequenced using Illumina Hiseq 2500 and PacBio RS II sequencers and assembled de novo using HGAP. The genome was automatically and manually annotated.The genome of P. aeruginosa Guangzhou-Pae617 is 6,430,493 bp containing 5881 predicted genes with an average G + C content of 66.43%. The genome showed high similarity to two new sequenced P. aeruginosa strains isolated from New York, USA. From the whole genome sequence, we identified a type IV pilin, two large prophages, 15 antibiotic resistant genes, 5 genes involved in the "Infectious diseases" pathways, and 335 virulence factors.The antibiotic resistance and virulence factors in the genome of P. aeruginosa strain Guangzhou-Pae617 were identified by complete genomic analysis. It contributes to further study on antibiotic resistance mechanism and clinical control of P. aeruginosa. Copyright © 2018 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
