Genome sequence of the acute urethral catheter isolate Pseudomonas aeruginosa MH38 - Abstract

Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a major nosocomial bacterial pathogen causing complicated catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs).

Here, we present the 6.9-Mb draft genome sequence of P. aeruginosa MH38 isolated from an acute nosocomial CAUTI. It exhibits resistance to several antibiotics but revealed low-level production of virulence factors.
