Complete Genome Sequences of Salmonella Enterica Serovar Heidelberg Strains Associated With a Multistate Food-Borne Illness Investigation

Genome Announc. 2014 Jun 5;2(3):e01154-13. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.01154-13.

Abstract

Next-generation sequencing is being evaluated for use with food-borne illness investigations, especially when the outbreak strains produce patterns that cannot be discriminated from non-outbreak strains using conventional procedures. Here we report complete genome assemblies of two Salmonella enterica serovar Heidelberg strains with a common pulsed-field gel electrophoresis pattern isolated during an outbreak investigation.
