Abstract

We investigate biogeographical signals in highly recombining genes to determine the extent of clustering between genomes from geographically distinct Campylobacter populations. Using 15 UK/American pairs of isolates that shared ancestors, we identify regions that have frequently and recently recombi...

Abstract: We investigate biogeographical signals in highly recombining genes to determine the extent of clustering between genomes from geographically distinct Campylobacter populations. Using 15 UK/American pairs of isolates that shared ancestors, we identify regions that have frequently and recently recombined to test their correlation with geographical origin. Detection of signals of biogeographical differences in Campylobacter genomes will contribute to improved source attribution of clinical Campylobacter infection and inform intervention strategies to reduce campylobacteriosis.
