Within-host evolution and immigration of Escherichia coli in the human gastrointestinal tract

Dixit, Ojas V. A.


Several studies have shown that when a human host harbours two or more strains of E. coli, the second strain is significantly more likely to be a member of the same phylogroup than to be a member of a different phylogroup. Such an outcome may be the consequence of a within host evolution event or due an independent immigration/establishment event. To determine the relative importance of these two types of events in determining E. coli diversity in a host, a large collection of E. coli that...[Show more]
