This study aims to evaluate the evolution of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) phenotypes and genotypes in Salmonella enterica from swine and poultry production in Brazil, over the last ten years, and determine the impact of AMR profiles on the dynamics of serotypes spread on both animal species. Strains from the FMVZ/USP collection will be submitted to multiplex PCR serotyping, AMR profiling and further whole genome sequencing. Expected results include improving the knowledge of AMR epidemiology and resistance genes transmission dynamics in S. enterica from swine and poultry, as well as training of the involved research groups.
