Complete genome assemblies of three highly prevalent, toxigenic clostridioides difficile strains causing health care-associated infections in Australia

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

    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.
