Abstract

Based on pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) profile, whole-genome sequencing (WGS) of eight carbapenem-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolates from a bone marrow transplant unit in São Paulo, Brazil, was performed to investigate the presence of resistance and virulence genes as well as to determine the sequence type (ST) by multilocus sequence typing (MLST).
