Infection of Ixodes ricinus by Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato in peri-urban forests of France – Axelle Marchant , Alain Le Coupanec , Claire Joly , Emeline Perthame, Natacha Sertour, Martine Garnier, Vincent Godard, Elisabeth Ferquel , Valerie Choumet

Lyme borreliosis is the most common tick-borne disease in the northern hemisphere. In Europe, it is transmitted by Ixodes ticks that carry bacteria belonging to the Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato complex. The objective of this work was to explore eco-epidemiological factors of Lyme borreliosis in peri-urban forests of France (Sénart,…

Manual and expert annotation of the nearly complete genome sequence of Staphylococcus sciuri strain ATCC 29059: A reference for the oxidase-positive staphylococci that supports the atypical phenotypic features of the species group – Christo-Foroux E, Vallaeys T, Loux V, Dassa E, Deutscher J, Wandersman C, Livernois A, Hot C, Criscuolo A, Dauga C, Clermont D, Chesneau O

Staphylococcus sciuri is considered to be one of the most ancestral species in the natural history of the Staphylococcus genus that consists of 48 validly described species. It belongs to the basal group of oxidase-positive and novobiocin-resistant staphylococci that diverged from macrococci approximately 250 million years ago. Contrary to other…

Revisiting the taxonomy of the genus Elizabethkingia using whole-genome sequencing, optical mapping, and MALDI-TOF, along with proposal of three novel Elizabethkingia species: Elizabethkingia bruuniana sp. nov., Elizabethkingia ursingii sp. nov., and Elizabethkingia occulta sp. nov – Nicholson AC, Gulvik CA, Whitney AM, Humrighouse BW, Graziano J, Emery B, Bell M, Loparev V, Juieng P, Gartin J, Bizet C, Clermont D, Criscuolo A, Brisse S, McQuiston JR

The genus Elizabethkingia is genetically heterogeneous, and the phenotypic similarities between recognized species pose challenges in correct identification of clinically derived isolates. In addition to the type species Elizabethkingia meningoseptica, and more recently proposed Elizabethkingia miricola, Elizabethkingia anophelis and Elizabethkingia endophytica, four genomospecies have long been recognized. By comparing historic…

Starting Tue 24 Oct 2017 at 08:00 am, Valerie Crecy-Lagard will organize Linking gene and function, comparative genomics tools for biologists.

More than twenty years after the first bacterial genome has been sequenced, microbiologists are faced with an avalanche of genomic data. However the quality of the functional annotations of the sequenced proteome is very poor with more than half of the sequenced proteins remaining of unknown function. After taking this…

Training
Starting Mon 25 Sep 2017 at 10:00 am, Gregorio Iraola will organize Hands-on Metagenomics data analysis: tools for bioprospection in clinical and environmental microbiology

The main objective of this training course is to provide the trainees: i) a concise theoretical framework of the state-of-the-art methodologies and analytical approaches to analyse metagenomic high-throughput data and ii) help and assist the trainees during intensive hands-on sessions to apply these methodologies on their own real datasets and…
