Study Detail

TitleMycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis diversity
Study TypeWhole Genome Sequencing
Abstract BACKGROUND: Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis (Map) is an infectious enteric pathogen that causes Johne's disease in livestock. Determining genetic diversity is prerequisite to understanding the epidemiology and biology of Map. We performed the first whole genome sequencing (WGS) of 14 .. [more]
