Complete genome sequence and adherence characteristics of Escherichia coli O157:H7 isolated from super-shedder cattle
Escherichia coli (E.coli) O157:H7 is a highly virulent strain of enterohmorrhagic E.coli. It produces shiga like verotoxins, and poses a severe risk to public health causing foodbourne illness with severe gastrointestinal symptoms. It can also lead to haemolytic ureamic syndrome (HUS) which can be fatal.
E.coli O157:H7 resides in the terminal-anal junction of asymptomatic cattle and is shed in faeces, where it enters the food chain. Authors sought to investigate the molecular mechanisms of super shedding (SS) cattle (animals that excrete extremely large numbers of O157 in faeces). Comprehensive comparative genomic analysis of an O157 isolate from super shedding cattle (SS17) was performed which revealed some distinctive genetic features.

F1000Posters is a unique open access repository for posters and slide presentations across biology and medicine. By keeping the work visible long after a meeting has ended it maximizes the return on the time, effort and money invested in creating each presentation. We also accept depositions from local meetings (e.g. PhD student days).
F1000Posters has received positive responses from presenters and societies alike, and we have support from leading journals and publishers including Nature, Science, PNAS, Elsevier, BioMed Central, PLoS, SAGE etc (see here for a full list of responses). More »
