Interpretive Summary: Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica is a major cause of foodborne illnesses associated with a wide variety of foods including meat, eggs, fruits, vegetables, nuts and spices. S. enterica subsp. enterica serovar Thompson (S. Thompson) has been the cause of foodborne outbreaks associated with cilantro, chicken, beef, and smoked salmon. Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica serovar Thompson (S. Thompson) strain RM6836 was isolated from lettuce in 2002. We report the complete sequence and annotation of the genome of S. Thompson strain RM6836. This is the first reported complete genome sequence for S. Thompson and will provide a point for comparative studies of this Salmonella serovar.
