Vibrio cholerae Database

Vibrio cholerae is a Gram-negative bacterium that includes over 200 distinct serotypes, only some of which cause the diarrheal disease of cholera in humans. The NIAID-funded Microbial Sequencing Center at the JCVI generated draft genome sequences for a number of strains of V. cholera. As a collaboration with JCVI, we are generating additional sequence data using new technologies that we are assembling with the original sequence to improve the quality of the draft assemblies. Improving the quality of these draft genomes will increase their utility in comparative genomic studies of the strain differences in fitness in various environments and their ability to cause human disease, among other topics.
