The number of diarrhea cases caused by atypical enteropathogenic Escherichia coli (aEPEC) has been increasing worldwide. Here, we report the draft whole-genome sequences of 10 aEPEC strains isolated in Brazil. These sequences will provide an important source for future studies concerning aEPEC pathogenicity and genetic markers of potentially virulent strains.
