Vibrio parahaemolyticus is a seafood-borne pathogen autochthonous to the marine and estuarine ecosystem, which is responsible for gastroenteritis due to the consumption of contaminated raw seafood. Here, we report the draft genome sequence of V. parahaemolyticus VP-49, isolated from seafood, to identify the different virulence attributes and to study the… (More)
Antimicrobial-resistant salmonellosis is a significant public health concern globally. A study was conducted to screen for Salmonella species from a total of 120 samples, of which 50 were retail meat samples purchased from five randomly selected sales outlets in the city of Mangalore, India. Twenty poultry fecal materials freshly voided before slaughter… (More)
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.
