Full-text available
Salmonella is a common food-associated bacterium that has substantial impact on worldwide human health and the global economy. This is the public release of 1,183 Salmonella draft genome sequences as part of the 100K Pathogen Genome Project. These isolates represent global genomic diversity in the Salmonella genus.

Campylobacter is a food-associated bacterium and a leading cause of foodborne illness worldwide, being associated with poultry in the food supply. This is the initial public release of 202 Campylobacter genome sequences as part of the 100K Pathogen Genome Project. These isolates represent global genomic diversity in the Campylobacter genus.

Importance: Listeria monocytogenes is the causative agent of listeriosis, a disease which manifests as gastroenteritis, meningoencephalitis, and abortion. Amongst Salmonella, E. coli, Campylobacter, and Listeria-the most prevalent foodborne illnesses-infection by L. monocytogenes carries the highest mortality rate. The ability of L. monocytogenes...

Importance: This study examined the link between public health and genomic variation of Campylobacter in relation to disease in humans, primates, and livestock. Use of large-scale whole genome sequencing enabled population level assessment to find new genes that are linked to livestock disease. With 184 Campylobacter genomes we assessed virulence...

The techniques of microbe community genome sequencing as applied to environmental samples - metagenomics - offer powerful insight into microbial community structure and ecology that can affect food safety decisions for public health security. In this paper, the design and characteristics of a new informatics service, the Metagenomics Computation an...
Article
Full-text available
Under intense scrutiny for safety and authenticity, our food supply encompasses probiotic supplementation, fermentation organisms, pathogenic bacteria, and microbial toxins - in short, the microbiome and metabolome of food. Recent claims regarding probiotic supplements, additives, and cultured foods highlight the need for widely accepted protocols...

BACKGROUND: Helicobacter pylori, a gram-negative bacterium associated with a spectrum of benign and malignant gastric conditions, is one of the most genetically variable pathogens. Its genome encodes a large number of DNA methyltransferases targeting specific motif sequences of ∼4-15 bp. DNA base modifications epigenetically regulate gene expressio...

Campylobacter jejuni is the leading cause of gastroenteritis in humans worldwide with recent studies indicating wild birds as zoonotic vectors. American crows, abundant in urban, suburban, and agricultural settings, carry C. jejuni as a commensal organism. Studies demonstrating that the crow is a Campylobacter zoonotic reservoir are lacking, and no...

Next-generation whole genome sequencing of microbes demands rapid, robust, and scalable library construction workflows, capable of generating high-quality sequence data across a wide range of genome sizes, complexities and genomic GC content. In this Application Note, we describe a streamlined library preparation method that results in minimal bias...

Background Effector proteins function not only as toxins to induce plant cell death, but also enable pathogens to suppress or evade plant defense responses. NLP-like proteins are considered to be effector proteins, and they have been isolated from bacteria, fungi, and oomycete plant pathogens. There is increasing evidence that NLPs have the ability...

The oomycete vegetable pathogen Phytophthora capsici has shown remarkable adaptation to fungicides and new hosts. Like other members of this destructive genus, P. capsici has an explosive epidemiology, rapidly producing massive numbers of asexual spores on infected hosts. In addition, P. capsici can remain dormant for years as sexually recombined o...

Phytophthora capsici is an important oomycete pathogen of Capsicum peppers worldwide. Populations of P. capsici recovered from coastal regions in Peru were previously shown to be dominated by a single clonal lineage referred to as PcPE-1. During 2008, 219 isolates of P. capsici were collected from Capsicum pubescens (Rocoto), C. annum (Pi-mento), a...

Tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill) is an economically important vegetable that is widely used for both basic and applied research. Numerous advantageous features render tomato as a favorable model species for plant research in areas of classical genetics, cytogenetics, molecular genetics, and molecular biology. Its self-pollinating nature, easy...
