"De Novo Assembly of High Density Electronic Maps Reveals Structural Diversity in Bordetella pertussis" - SFAF 2017

May 17, 2017

The generation of dense, highly accurate whole genome electronic maps of pathogenic strains such as B. pertussis enables a level of structural analysis unavailable by existing sequencing and mapping technologies. The precision and accuracy of Nabsys HD-Mapping™ simultaneously allows for distinction between highly related strains and a clear understanding of the nature of structural variation that can modulate virulence and vaccine avoidance characteristics of pathogenic bacterial strains.

We would like to thank Margaret Williams, PhD (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Atlanta, GA) for providing DNA samples and strain reference sequence files.
