Abstract

Escherichia coli RS218 is the prototypic strain of neonatal meningitis-causing E. coli (NMEC) and has been used in many studies related to NMEC pathogenesis. In the present study, the genome of E. coli RS218 was sequenced together with its plasmid, pRS218. Here, we report the fully closed genome sequence of E. coli RS218.
