Genome Sequences of Three Highly Copper-Resistant Salmonella enterica subsp. I Serovar Typhimurium Strains Isolated from Pigs in Denmark

Genome Announc. 2014 Dec 24;2(6):e01334-14. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.01334-14.


Salmonella typhimurium is the causative agent of typhoid fever, which causes nearly 21.7 million illnesses and 217,000 deaths around the world each year. Here, we describe the draft genome sequences of the Salmonella typhimurium strains S7, S15, and S23, isolated from copper-fed pigs in Denmark and containing additional putative determinants conferring resistances to copper and other metals and metalloids.
