Sixteen Escherichia coli isolates were obtained from fecal matter from a beef farm in Puerto Rico. Isolates were whole-genome sequenced for in silico characterization, including pathotype characterization, virulence, and plasmid identification. The results of the draft genomes identified potential pathogenic E. coli strains from beef cattle in Puerto Rico.
