Research: 100K Genome Project unveils 20 more foodborne pathogen genomes
Submitted by J.W. Bizzaro; posted on Friday, August 02, 2013
Submitter EXCERPT:
This brings to 30 the number of genomic sequences completed by the 100K Genome Project, which aims to sequence the genomes of 100,000 bacterial and viral genomes. This genome sequencing effort is focused on speeding the diagnosis and treatment of foodborne diseases, as well as shortening the duration and limiting the spread of foodborne illness outbreaks. In the United States alone, foodborne diseases annually sicken around 48 million people and kill approximately 3,000, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The newly deposited sequences include several isolates of Salmonella, Listeria, Campylobacter, and Vibrio, as well as a full characterization of their epigenomes -- a diagnostic feature that defines how the DNA is chemically modified and changes how the organism behaves.
