A Gram-negative rod from the Yersinia genus was isolated from a clinical case of yersiniosis in the United Kingdom. Long read sequencing data from an Oxford Nanopore Technologies (ONT) MinION in conjunction with Illumina HiSeq reads were used to generate a finished quality genome of this strain. Overall Genome Related Index (OGRI) of the strain was used to determine that it was a novel species within Yersinia, despite biochemical similarities to Yersinia enterocolitica. The 16S ribosomal RNA gene accessions are MN434982-MN434987 and the accession number for the complete and closed chro-mosome is CP043727. The type strain is SRR7544370T (=NCTC 14382T /=LMG 31573T).
