Analysis of the prophages carried by human infecting isolates provides new insight into the evolution of Group B Streptococcus species
|Published in||Clinical Microbiology and Infection. 2017|
|Abstract||Group B Streptococcus (GBS) emerged in the 1970s as a major cause of neonatal infections, and has been increasingly associated with infections in adults since the 1990s. Prophages have been suspected to have driven these epidemiological trends. We have characterized the prophages harboured by 275 human GBS isolates belonging to the major lineages.|
