Comparative genomics of 274 Vibrio cholerae genomes reveals mobile functions structuring three niche dimensions

Abstract

Vibrio cholerae is a globally dispersed pathogen that has evolved with humans for centuries, but also includes non-pathogenic environmental strains. Here, we identify the genomic variability underlying this remarkable persistence across the three major niche dimensions space, time, and habitat. Taking an innovative approach of genome-wide association… (More)
