Complete Genome Sequence of Salmonella enterica Serovar Typhimurium U288

Genome Announc. 2013 Jul 25;1(4):e00467-13. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00467-13.


Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium U288 has firmly established itself within the United Kingdom pig production industry. The prevalence of this highly pathogenic multidrug-resistant serovar at such a critical point in the food chain is therefore of great concern. To enhance our understanding of this microorganism, whole-genome and plasmid sequencing was performed.
