Cystic fibrosis (CF) patients are often chronically colonised or infected by non-fermenting Gram-negative bacilli, with Pseudomonas aeruginosa being the most prevalent. In this study, we report the draft genome sequence of a multidrug-resistant P. aeruginosa strain belonging to sequence type ST235, isolated from the respiratory tract of a CF patient with chronic colonisation. Whole-genome sequencing analysis revealed a 6.7 Mb genome size and the presence of 12 antibiotic resistance genes, including the rmtG gene conferring high-level aminoglycoside resistance, located on the chromosome.
