Phylogenomics of Shiga’s epidemic dysentery bacillus (Shigella dysenteriae type 1)
The agent of epidemic dysentery, the bacterium Shigella dysenteriae type 1, was isolated in Japan in 1897 by Dr Kyoshi Shiga during a massive epidemic of bloody diarrhea that caused 20,000 deaths over a […]
The project aims at developing top-down proteomics approaches to deeply characterize bacterial strains on a very short time scale after sample collection in the hospital. This deep characterization includes: (i) the accurate identification of […]
