New PATRIC Website Release
Welcome to the new version of the PATRIC Website
Updates to the website include layout changes, more consistency in using PATRIC tools and data, streamlined operations, and other enhancements. Data stored in private workspaces (for registered users) is available from the new site - no data or user account migration is necessary. A QuickStart video, available from the Help menu at the top of the page, provides a brief overview of the new layout and features. You can also contact us from the Help / Provide Feedback menu option if you have issues. We will maintain the prior version of the website at https://www.legacy.patricbrc.org for approximately 2 months.
First US Case of E. Coli Resistant to Colistin
The assembled genome of Colistin-resistant E. coli MRSN 388634 is now available in PATRIC here. Sequence reads for MRSN388634 have been deposited in the NCBI Short Read Archive by researchers at the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research and Walter Reed National Military Medical Center under Accession number SRP075674. The authors report the presence of mcr-1 in an E. coli cultured from a patient with a urinary tract infection in the United States. The early version of the publication can be found at “http://aac.asm.org/content/early/2016/05/25/AAC.01103-16.full.pdf”.A provisional assembly and annotation is provided in PATRIC using the PATRIC Genome Assembly and Genome Annotation services and can be accessed here. We will provide the GenBank version of the assembly once the genome becomes available in GenBank. We would like to thank the members of the Walter Reed team for their early release of the data in the Short Read Archive.

Your Genome Sequences
PATRIC's new Genome Assembly Service App performs automatic genome assembly using the latest computational tools. Single or multiple assemblers can be invoked to compare results. PATRIC's new Genome Annotation Service App utilizes the RASTtk (Rapid Annotation using Subsystem Technology tookit) to enables researchers to build custom annotation pipelines for annotation of bacterial and archaeal genomes. These services are delivered through a new PATRIC Workspace that also supports other services including Differential Expression.

Supporting the TB Research Community
THROUGH NEW TB@PATRIC RESOURCES
PATRIC announces new web-based features designed to serve TB researchers worldwide. This resource provides fast searching and powerful comparative analysis tools for all Mycobacterium tuberculosis genomes, including the H37Rv reference genome, its variants and other members in the tuberculosis complex. Also included are important reference genomes, M. smegmatis and M. marinum.
