First Fully Closed Genome Sequence of Salmonella Enterica Subsp. Enterica Serovar Cubana Associated With a Food-Borne Outbreak

Genome Announc. 2014 Oct 30;2(5):e01112-14. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.01112-14.

Abstract

Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica serovar Cubana (Salmonella serovar Cubana) is associated with human and animal disease. Here, we used third-generation, single-molecule, real-time DNA sequencing to determine the first complete genome sequence of Salmonella serovar Cubana CFSAN002050, which was isolated from fresh alfalfa sprouts during a multistate outbreak in 2012.
