Authors: Lindsey, Rebecca L and Rowe, Lori A and Batra, Dhwani and Smith, Peyton and Strockbine, Nancy A

Escherichia albertii is an emerging pathogen that is closely related to Escherichia coli and can carry some of the same virulence genes as E. coli. Here, we report the release of Illumina-corrected PacBio sequences for eight E. albertii genomes. Two of these strains carry Shiga toxin 2f.
