Abstract

Carbapenem resistance in Klebsiella pneumoniae, frequently conferred by the blaKPC gene, is a major public health threat. We sequenced a blaKPC-containing strain of K. pneumoniae belonging to the emergent lineage ST941, in order to better understand the evolution of blaKPC within this species.
