Abstract

In this study we announce the draft genome sequence of a newly identified Acinetobacter species cross-reacting with E. coli serotype 0157:H7. The advent of Next-Generation technology has paved to way to discover new species which could otherwise be misidentified using conventional cultural and serotyping methods. The whole genome sequence of this isolate will help to identify potential marker/s of intervention and further genomic analysis might also shed light onto the virulence properties of this newly identified Acinetobacter species which has been provided the new name of Acinetobacter maqsudiensis.
