Complete genome sequence of Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica Serotype Derby, associated with the pork sector in France

Yann Sévellec et al., Microbiology Resource Announcements, volume 7, n° 12, septembre, 4 pages

In the European Union, Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica serovar Derby is the most abundant serotype isolated from pork. Recent studies have shown that this serotype is polyphyletic. However, one main genomic lineage, characterized by sequence type 40 (ST40), the presence of the Salmonella pathogenicity island 23, and showing resistance to streptomycin, sulphonamides, and tetracycline (STR-SSS-TET), is pork associated. Here, we describe the complete genome sequence of a strain from this lineage isolated in France.
