Bacteriophages are the major drivers of Shigella flexneri serotype 1c genome plasticity: A complete genome analysis

Parajuli, Pawan; Adamski, Marcin; Verma, Naresh

Description

Background Shigella flexneri is the primary cause of bacillary dysentery in the developing countries. S. flexneri serotype 1c is a novel serotype, which is found to be endemic in many developing countries, but little is known about its genomic architecture and virulence signatures. We have sequenced for the first time, the complete genome of S. flexneri serotype 1c strain Y394, to provide insights into its diversity and evolution. Results We generated a high-quality reference genome of S....[Show more]
