AbstractWe sought to determine the relative value of conventional molecular methods and whole-genome sequencing (WGS) for subtypingSalmonella enterica serovar Enteritidis recovered from 2000 to 2015 in Tunisia and to investigate the genetic diversity of this serotype. A total of 175Salmonella Enteritidis isolates were recovered from human, animal, and foodborne outbreak samples. Pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE), multiple locus variable-number tandem repeat analysis (MLVA), and whole-genome sequencing were performed. Eight pulsotypes were detected for all isolates with PFGE (DI  = 0.518). Forty-fiveSalm...
