Investigators Use WGS, Mutational Analysis to Characterize Drug-Resistant Salmonella Epidemiology | GenomeWeb

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – An international research team has sequenced samples of multidrug-resistant Salmonella enterica strain sourced from different species and countriesand characterized the epidemiology of the bacteria to better understand why the strain has been so successful.

In the US alone, Salmonella is estimated to cause 1 million cases resulting in 19,000 hospitalizations and 380 deaths each year, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
