Draft genome sequence of NDM-encoding Klebsiella pneumoniae isolated from feral swine.

Abstract

New Delhi metallo-β-lactamase (NDM)-producing Enterobacteriaceae pose a great threat to public health globally. Most known NDM-producing Enterobacteriaceae are associated with human hospital or community infections. Here, we report the draft genome sequence of an NDM-1-encoding Klebsiella pneumoniae strain isolated from feral swine (Sus scrofa) captured in Florida, USA.
