Abstract

Clostridium botulinum is a pathogen of concern for low-acid canned foods. Here we report draft genomes of a neurotoxinproducing C. botulinum strain isolated from water samples used for cooling low-acid canned foods at a canning facility. The genome sequence confirmed that this strain belonged to C. botulinum serotype B1, albeit with major differences, including thousands of unique single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) compared to other genomes of the same serotype.
