Abstract

We describe a rare isolate of Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica serovar Panama with an extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL) profile from a German cattle-fattening farm. Applying two next-generation sequencing methods we generated sequences of the genome as well as the plasmids; assembled the draft genome sequence of Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica serovar Panama isolate 18PM0209. Antimicrobial resistance genes, virulence-associated genes and plasmids were analyzed using bioinformatics. Occurrence of multidrug-resistant Salmonella serovars at cattle-fattening farms indicate the need of enhanced surveillance to prevent further spread of these organisms.
