Abstract

In recent years, the concept of bacteria-mediated cancer therapy has gained significant attention as an alternative to conventional therapy. The focus has been on non-typhoidal Salmonella (NTS), particularly S. Typhimurium, for its anti-cancer properties, however, other NTS serovars such as Salmonella Oslo, which are associated with foodborne illnesses could potentially be effective anti-cancer agents. Here, we report the draft genome sequence of Salmonella Oslo isolated from seafood and its laboratory generated auxotrophic mutant.
