Researchers found a potential alternative toxin, as well as antibiotic resistance genes, in a newly-sequenced Vibrio cholerae strain from a British WWI soldier.

In PNAS this week: numerous mobile genetic elements contribute to Vibrio cholerae drug resistance, troponin I mutations in sudden infant deaths, and more.

To Track Cholera

Nature calls for genomics to become part of the World Health Organization's cholera surveillance approach.

In Nature this week: Yemen cholera epidemic bacteria sequenced, loci linked to osteoporosis, and more.

The cholera epidemic in Yemen is caused by astrain with an unusual antimicrobial resistance phenotype that belongs to a sublineage from South Asia.

The researchers also reported that cholera strains infecting members of the same household were highly similar, suggesting in-household transmissions.
