UD research study to shed light on emerging seaborne pathogen
Date:1/21/2009

Does it have some advantage in the environment?"

"We want to determine if the bacterium has acquired new genes to make it more virulent, allowing it to survive better in the aquatic environment and/or in the human gut," Boyd adds.

In a recent study published in BMC Microbiology, Boyd, Parent and their co-authors show using genomic analysis that this new highly virulent strain has acquired large pieces of DNA, which may give the bacterium a major advantage from an evolutionary point of view.

"Using molecular genetic approaches, we will delete some of these genes in the bacterium and determine how well the organism can survive and grow," Boyd notes.
