Evolution of genomic content in the stepwise emergence of Escherichia coli O157:H7.
Genome comparisons have demonstrated that dramatic genetic change often underlies the emergence of new bacterial pathogens. Evolutionary analysis of Escherichia coli O157:H7, a pathogen that hasExpand

Short- and long-term changes in proteome composition and kinetic properties in a culture of Escherichia coli during transition from glucose-excess to glucose-limited growth conditions in continuous
To investigate the ability of Escherichia coli K12 MG1655 to cope with excess and limitation of a carbon and energy source, we studied the changes in kinetic properties and two-dimensional (2D) gelExpand

On-chip non-equilibrium dissociation curves and dissociation rate constants as methods to assess specificity of oligonucleotide probes
Nucleic acid hybridization serves as backbone for many high-throughput systems for detection, expression analysis, comparative genomics and re-sequencing. Specificity of hybridization between probesExpand

The apparent clock-like evolution of Escherichia coli in glucose-limited chemostats is reproducible at large but not at small population sizes and can be explained with Monod kinetics.
To follow and model evolution of a microbial population in the chemostat, parameters are needed that give an indication of the absolute extent of evolution at a high resolution of time. In this studyExpand

Genetic diversity in Campylobacter jejuni is associated with differential colonization of broiler chickens and C57BL/6J IL10-deficient mice
Previous studies have demonstrated that Campylobacter jejuni, the leading causative agent of bacterial food-borne disease in the USA, exhibits high-frequency genetic variation that is associated withExpand

Global transcriptional response of Escherichia coli O157:H7 to growth transitions in glucose minimal medium
Background:Global patterns of gene expression of Escherichia coli K-12 during growth transitions have been deeply investigated, however, comparable studies of E. coli O157:H7 have not been explored,Expand

Ultrasensitive Detection of Salmonella and Listeria monocytogenes by Small-Molecule Chemiluminescence Probes.
Detection of Salmonella and L. monocytogenes in food samples by current diagnostic methods requires relatively long time to results (2-6 days). Furthermore, the ability to perform environmentalExpand

Genomic diversity of pathogenic Escherichia coli of the EHEC 2 clonal complex
BackgroundEvolutionary analyses of enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli (EHEC) have identified two distantly related clonal groups: EHEC 1, including serotype O157:H7 and its inferred ancestor O55:H7;Expand
