BACKGROUND Genes present in only certain strains of a bacterial species can strongly affect cellular phenotypes and evolutionary potentials. One segment that seemed particularly rich in strain-specific genes was found by comparing the first two sequenced Helicobacter pylori genomes (strains 26695 and J99) and was named a "plasticity zone". PRINCIPAL FINDINGS We studied the nature and evolution of plasticity zones by sequencing them in five more Helicobacter strains, determining their… CONTINUE READING
