TitleRapid detection and comparative genome analysis of Legionella pneumophila sg1 ST47
Study TypeWhole Genome Sequencing
Abstract Legionella pneumophila serogroup (sg) 1, sequence type (ST) 47 is a major cause of Legionnaires' disease in North West Europe. Interestingly, this ST is rarely isolated from commonly expected environmental sources of L. pneumophila. In order to develop a rapid, real-time PCR assay for ST47, we anal .. [more]
