In Science this week: genomics tracks cholera pandemics.

By sequencing Vibrio cholerae isolates from Africa and Latin America, investigators got a look at the lineages leading to outbreaks over several decades.

Genome sequences from isolates of Vibrio cholerae collected before and after the so-called seventh cholera pandemicprovide insights into the strain's evolution.
