In recent years, the proportion of Salmonella enterica infections represented by S. enterica serovar Newport has increased markedly among humans and animals. Multilocus variable-number tandem-repeat analysis (MLVA) has proven to be useful in discriminating other highly clonal Salmonella serovars. Here, we report on the development of a highly discriminatory MLVA for Salmonella serovar Newport.
