Enterobacter asburiae belongs to the Enterobacter cloacae complex (Ecc), which comprises six heterogenic species. These bacteria can cause nosocomial infections. Moreover, they are well known for antibiotic resistance features based on overproduction of AmpC ß-lactamases. Although Ecc have clinical importance, little is known about their virulence-associated properties, and very few strains from the six species have been sequenced. In this study, the type strain of E. asburiae 1497-78(T) (ATCC 35953) was sequenced. The genome sequence of the type strain of E. asburiae will help us to understand antibiotic resistance and evolution in Ecc. Copyright © 2017. Published by Elsevier Ltd.
