Complete Genome Sequences of Strains from 36 Serotypes of Salmonella James Robertson, Catherine Yoshida, Simone Gurnik, John H. E. Nash Abstract We report here the completed closed genome sequences of strains representing 36 serotypes of Salmonella. These genome sequences will provide useful references for understanding the genetic variation between serotypes, particularly as references for mapping of raw reads or […]
During this project, the problems associated with Salmonella contamination of fresh produce will be addressed through the development of natural solutions to control the presence of Salmonella on fruits and vegetables, as they are growing in the field. New tests will also be developed so that fresh produce can be quickly and efficiently tested for the presence of Salmonella before being sold to consumers. Finally, new tools will be developed to allow public health officials to better determine the source of Salmonella illnesses when they occur, which will allow for contaminated food to be removed from grocery stores, before purchase by consumers.
