- Comparative genomics of Neisseria meningitidis: core genome, islands of horizontal transfer and pathogen-specific genesJulie C Dunning Hotopp
The Institute for Genomic Research, 9712 Medical Center Dr, Rockville, MD 20850, USA
Microbiology 152:3733-49. 2006..The N. meningitidis genome is characterized by the horizontal acquisition of multiple genetic islands; the study of these islands reveals important sets of genes varying between isolates and likely to be related to pathogenicity...
