Salmonella enterica serovar Agona is an important zoonotic pathogen, causing serious human illness worldwide, but knowledge about its genetics and evolution, especially regarding the genomic events that might have contributed to the formation of S. Agona as an important pathogen, is lacking. As a first step toward understanding this pathogen and characterizing its genomic differences with other salmonellae, we constructed a physical map of S. Agona in strain SARB1 using I-CeuI, XbaI, AvrII and… CONTINUE READING
