NGS as a tool for investigating spread of zoonotic bacteria: dealing with source and outbreak genetic variation in a spatio-temporal context

Robert Söderlund, Tomas Jinnerot, Adrien Janssens, Erik Bongcam-Rudloff


We are currently conducting a series of studies to better define source of genetic variation found in zoonotic bacterial populations in animal reservoirs and animal feed, as well as the variation found between bacterial isolates collected from a single sampling occasion. The results are providing us with insights that will improve future outbreak investigations by guiding the sampling and analysis strategy as well as the interpretation of data.
