Abstract

Nontyphoidal Salmonella enterica strains are major foodborne pathogens with global public health importance. Foodborne salmonellosis can be life-threatening, especially in sub-Saharan Africa. We report the complete genome sequences of 20 nontyphoidal Salmonella enterica strains isolated in Rwanda. The reported 20 bacterial chromosomes and 8 plasmids each belong to 1 of 9 nontyphoidal Salmonella serotypes.
