Genomic background of a colistin-resistant and highly virulent MCR-1-positive Escherichia coli ST6395 from a broiler chicken in Pakistan
The convergence of high virulence and multidrug resistance (MDR) in Gram-negative pathogens circulating at the human-animal interface is a critical public health issue. The authors hereby report the genomic characteristics and virulent behavior of a colistin-resistant Escherichia coli, serotype ONT:H26, belonging to ST6395, isolated from a healthy broiler in Pakistan.
