IS elements in Aliivibrio salmonicida LFI1238: occurrence, variability and impact on adaptability.


Insertion sequence (IS) elements are short, self-replicating DNA sequences that are capable of efficiently spreading over the host genome. Possessing varied integration specificity IS elements are capable of the irreversible inactivation of genes, which diversifies the pool of intact genetic determinants in host populations. In the current study, we… (More)
