Abstract

<italic>Escherichia coli </italic>normally colonizes the lower intestine of animals and humans, but some serotypes are foodborne pathogens.  The <italic>Escherichia coli </italic>K_EC180 was isolated from swine feces that were collected from a weaner pig. In this genome announcement , <italic> E.coli </italic>K_EC180 was sequenced using PacBio RS II and Illumina NextSeq 500 platforms. The complete chromosome of<italic> E. coli </italic>K_EC180 is composed of one circular chromosome (5,017,281 bp) with 50.4 % of G+C content, 4,935 of coding sequence (CDS), 88 of tRNA, and 22 of rRNA genes. The complete genome of<italic> E. coli </italic>K_EC180 contains the toxin genes  such as shiga-like toxins (stxA and stxB).

Keywords: Escherichia coli K_EC180; Swine feces; Whole genome sequencing; shiga-like toxin
