Abstract

We investigated the use of whole-genome mapping and pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) with isolates from an outbreak of Salmonella enterica serotype Saintpaul. PFGE and whole-genome mapping were concordant with 22 of 23 isolates. Whole-genome mapping is a viable alternative tool for the epidemiological analysis of Salmonella food-borne disease investigations.
