Abstract

In a study of 1,777 Klebsiella strains, we discovered KPN1705, which was distinct from all recognized Klebsiella spp. We closed the genome of strain KPN1705 using a hybrid of Illumina short-read and Oxford Nanopore long-read technologies. For this novel species, we propose the name Klebsiella quasivariicola sp. nov.
