Abstract

Complete genome sequences of four toxigenic Clostridium difficile isolates from patients in the lower Hudson Valley, New York, USA, were achieved. These isolates represent four common sequence types (ST1, ST2, ST8, and ST42) belonging to two distinct phylogenetic clades. All isolates have a 4.0-to 4.2-Mb circular chromosome, and one carries a phage.
