Abstract

Avian-pathogenic Escherichia coli (APEC) strains cause extraintestinal diseases in avian species. Here, we present the draft genome of an APEC strain (SCI-07) from Brazil that was isolated from skin lesions (gelatinous edema) on the head and periorbital tissues of a laying hen with swollen head syndrome.
