Katani R, Cote R, Raygoza Garay JA, Li L, Arthur TM, DebRoy C, Mwangi MM, Kapur V. 2015. Complete genome sequence of SS52, a strain of Escherichia coli O157:H7 recovered from supershedder cattle. Genome Announc 3(2):e01569-14.
Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli O157:H7 causes foodborne infections, and cattle are the primary reservoir. Some animals, known as supershedders, excrete orders of magnitude more E. coli O157:H7 in the feces than normal. Here, we report the complete genome sequence of the SS52 supershedder strain of E. coli O157:H7.
