Abstract

Acinetobacter baumannii is an emerging opportunistic Gram-negative pathogen responsible for hospital-acquired infections. A. baumannii epidemics described in Europe and worldwide were caused by a limited number of genotypic clusters of multidrug-resistant strains. Here, we report the availability of draft genome sequences for three multidrug-resistant A. baumannii strains assigned to multilocus sequence typing genotypes ST2, ST25, and ST78 that were more frequently isolated during outbreaks occurred in Greece, Italy, Lebanon, and Turkey.
