We report the draft genome sequences of the collection referred to as the Escherichia coli DECA collection, which was assembled to contain representative isolates of the 15 most common diarrheagenic clones in humans (http://shigatox.net/new/). These genomes represent a valuable resource to the community of researchers who examine these enteric pathogens.
