A Geographically Widespread Outbreak Investigation and Development of a Rapid Screening Method Using Whole Genome Sequences of Enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli O121

Abstract

From 2014 to 2015, we investigated a suspected nationwide outbreak of enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli serogroup O121. However, similar pulsed field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) profiles and the lack of epidemiological links between the isolates made detection of the outbreak difficult. To elucidate a more precise genetic distance among the isolates, whole… (More)
