Abstract

Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica serovar Weltevereden is the most frequent serovar isolated from Asia. Here, we report a draft genome sequence of multidrug resistant Salmonella Weltevreden 9 isolated from seafood. Whole-genome of this isolate and annotation will help enhance the understanding of this pathogenic multidrug-resistant serovar.

Keywords: Salmonella Weltevreden; genome sequence; multidrug resistance; seafood.
