Defining a core genome multilocus sequence typing scheme for the global epidemiology of Vibrio parahaemolyticus
Vibrio parahaemolyticus is an important human foodborne pathogen whose transmission is associated with the consumption of contaminated seafood with a growing number of infections reported over recent years worldwide. A multilocus sequence typing (MLST) database for V. parahaemolyticus was created in 2008 and a large number of clones have been identified causing severe outbreaks worldwide (ST3), recurrent outbreaks in certain regions (e.g., ST36) or spreading to other regions where they a...Expand abstract
