O’Grady, K., Riley, T. V., & Knight, D. R. (2021). Complete genome assemblies of three highly prevalent, toxigenic clostridioides difficile strains causing health care-associated infections in Australia.

Abstract

Clostridioides difficile infection (CDI) is the leading cause of life-threatening health care-related gastrointestinal illness worldwide. Phylogenetically appropriate closed reference genomes are essential for studies of C. difficile transmission and evolution. Here, we provide high-quality complete hybrid genome assemblies for the three most prevalent C. difficile strains causing CDI in Australia.
