Researchers from the CDC and Georgia Tech tested the efficacy of using whole-genome shotgun sequencing to diagnose food-borne pathogens in outbreaks.

Different clades of Salmonella enterica serovar Enteritidis are behind the self-limiting and invasive diseases the bacterium causes in different parts of the world.

The researchers sequenced bacteria samples sourced from all over the world to reconstruct a phylogenetic tree and learn how it evolved to have multidrug resistance.
