Carolina Sánchez, PhD.

We present draft genome sequences of five Enterococcus species from patients

suspected of Clostridium difficile infection. Genome completeness was confirmed

by presence of bacterial orthologs (97%). Gene searches using Hidden-Markov

models revealed that the isolates harbor between seven and 11 genes involved in

antibiotic resistance to tetracyclines, beta-lactams, and vancomycin.
