Genome sequencing of environmental Escherichia coli expands understanding of the ecology and speciation of the model bacterial species

Luo, Chengwei; Walk, Seth T.; Gordon, David; Feldgarden, Michael; Tiedje, James M.; Konstantinidis, Konstantinos T


Defining bacterial species remains a challenging problem even for the model bacterium Escherichia coli and has major practical consequences for reliable diagnosis of infectious disease agents and regulations for transport and possession of organisms of economic importance. E. coli traditionally is thought to live within the gastrointestinal tract of humans and other warm-blooded animals and not to survive for extended periods outside its host; this understanding is the basis for its widespread...[Show more]
