The complete genome sequence of Escherichia coli K-12.
TLDR
The 4,639,221-base pair sequence of Escherichia coli K-12 is presented and reveals ubiquitous as well as narrowly distributed gene families; many families of similar genes within E. coli are also evident. Expand
Genome sequence of enterohaemorrhagic Escherichia coli O157:H7
TLDR
It is found that lateral gene transfer is far more extensive than previously anticipated and 1,387 new genes encoded in strain-specific clusters of diverse sizes were found in O157:H7, including candidate virulence factors, alternative metabolic capacities, several prophages and other new functions—all of which could be targets for surveillance. Expand
Extensive mosaic structure revealed by the complete genome sequence of uropathogenic Escherichia coli
TLDR
The complete genome sequence of uropathogenic Escherichia coli, strain CFT073 is presented and Comparisons indicate that extraintestinal pathogenic E. coli arose independently from multiple clonal lineages. Expand
Emergent Properties of Reduced-Genome Escherichia coli
TLDR
Eradication of stress-induced transposition evidently stabilized the MDS genomes and provided some of the new properties and led to unanticipated beneficial properties: high electroporation efficiency and accurate propagation of recombinant genes and plasmids that were unstable in other strains. Expand
Comparative Genomics of Salmonellaenterica Serovar Typhi Strains Ty2 and CT18
TLDR
The 4.8-Mb complete genome sequence of Salmonella enterica serovar Typhi strain Ty2 is presented, a human-specific pathogen causing typhoid fever, and a half-genome interreplichore inversion in Ty2 relative to CT18 was confirmed. Expand
Escherichia coli K-12: a cooperatively developed annotation snapshot—2005
TLDR
A snapshot analysis based on the most recent genome sequences of two E.coli K-12 strains allows comparison of their genotypes and mutant status of alleles. Expand
Genome Sequence of Yersinia pestis KIM
TLDR
The KIM genome sequence was compared with that of Y. pestis CO92, biovar Orientalis, revealing homologous sequences but a remarkable amount of genome rearrangement for strains so closely related, in a manner consistent with present knowledge of replication and recombination. Expand
The Complete Genome Sequence of Escherichia coli DH10B: Insights into the Biology of a Laboratory Workhorse
TLDR
The complete genomic sequence of DH10B is reported by using reads accumulated from the bovine sequencing project at Baylor College of Medicine and assembled with DNAStar's SeqMan genome assembler, confirming most of the reported alleles and necessitating reexamination of the assumed basis for the high transformability of DH 10B. Expand
The complete DNA sequence and analysis of the large virulence plasmid of Escherichia coli O157:H7.
TLDR
In the complete sequence of pO157, the large virulence plasmid of EHEC strain O157:H7 EDL 933, insights were obtained from patterns of DNA composition as well as the pathogenic and 'housekeeping' gene segments. Expand
Sequence of Shiga Toxin 2 Phage 933W fromEscherichia coli O157:H7: Shiga Toxin as a Phage Late-Gene Product
TLDR
Evidence is found that the toxin genes are part of a late-phage transcript, suggesting that toxin production may be coupled with, if not dependent upon, phage release during lytic growth, and three novel tRNA genes present in the phage genome may serve to increase the availability of rare tRNA species associated with efficient expression of pathogenicity determinants.
