Escherichia coli J96 (O4:K6) was isolated from a human pyelonephritis patient. Here, we report the draft genome sequence of E. coli J96, which contains virulence genes, including adhesion factors, alpha-hemolysins, and cytotoxic necrotizing factor. J96 infects the kidney and bladder, making it an important tool for studying E. coli pathogenesis.
