Consumption of poultry contaminated with Campylobacter jejuni is a risk factor for human gastrointestinal disease. The rational development of control strategies for Campylobacter within chickens requires an understanding of the colonization process at the molecular and population levels, both within and between hosts. Experiments employing competing strains of Campylobacter have been used to investigate colonization. Implicit in these studies is the assumption that the behavior of competing… CONTINUE READING
