Vibrio chromosomes share common history.
|Publication Type||Journal Article|
|Authors||Kirkup BC, Jr, Chang L., Chang S., Gevers D., and Polz MF|
|Abstract||While most gamma proteobacteria have a single circular chromosome, Vibrionales have two circular chromosomes. Horizontal gene transfer is common among Vibrios, and in light of this genetic mobility, it is an open question to what extent the two chromosomes themselves share a common history since their formation.|
