Genomic characterization of non-O1, non-O139 Vibrio cholerae reveals genes for a type III secretion system.
Non-O1, non-O139 Vibrio cholerae can cause gastroenteritis and extraintestinal infections, but, unlike O1 and O139 strains of V. cholerae, little is known about the virulence gene content of non-O1,Expand

Genomic analysis of the Mozambique strain of Vibrio cholerae O1 reveals the origin of El Tor strains carrying classical CTX prophage
Cholera outbreaks in subSaharan African countries are caused by strains of the El Tor biotype of toxigenic Vibrio cholerae O1. The El Tor biotype is the causative agent of the current seventh choleraExpand

Norovirus GII‐4 2006b variant circulating in patients with acute gastroenteritis in Thailand during a 2006–2007 study
Noroviruses (NoVs) are recognized as a significant cause of acute gastroenteritis in children and adults. A 14‐month study, from January 2006 to February 2007, was undertaken in a hospital inExpand

Genomic sequence and receptor for the Vibrio cholerae phage KSF-1phi: evolutionary divergence among filamentous vibriophages mediating lateral gene transfer.
KSF-1phi, a novel filamentous phage of Vibrio cholerae, supports morphogenesis of the RS1 satellite phage by heterologous DNA packaging and facilitates horizontal gene transfer. We analyzed theExpand

A novel bacteriocin from Enterococcus faecalis 478 exhibits a potent activity against vancomycin-resistant enterococci
The emergence of multidrug-resistant enterococci (MDRE) and particularly vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE) is considered a serious health problem worldwide, causing the need for newExpand

Development of a method for concentrating and detecting rotavirus in oysters.
Identification of enteric viruses in outbreak-implicated bivalve shellfish is difficult because of low levels of contamination and natural inhibitors present in shellfish tissue. In this study, theExpand
