Outbreak of Invasive Wound Mucormycosis in a Burn Unit Due to Multiple Strains of Mucor circinelloides f. circinelloides Resolved by Whole-Genome Sequencing – Garcia-Hermoso D, Criscuolo A, Lee SC, Legrand M, Chaouat M, Denis B, Lafaurie M, Rouveau M, Soler C, Schaal J-V, Mimoun M, Mebazaa A, Heitman J, Dromer F, Brisse S, Bretagne S, Alanio A

Mucorales are ubiquitous environmental molds responsible for mucormycosis in diabetic, immunocompromised, and severely burned patients. Small outbreaks of invasive wound mucormycosis (IWM) have already been reported in burn units without extensive microbiological investigations. We faced an outbreak of IWM in our center and investigated the clinical isolates with whole-genome sequencing…

Tue 12 Jun 2018 at 02:00 am, Lazlo-Albert Barbasi will talk about Network Medicine: From Cellular Networks to the Human Diseasome

Given the functional interdependencies between the molecular components in a human cell, a disease is rarely a consequence of an abnormality in a single gene, but reflects the perturbations of the complex intracellular network. The emerging tools of network medicine offer a platform to explore systematically not only the molecular…

Diverse laboratory colonies of Aedes aegypti harbor the same adult midgut bacterial microbiome – Dickson LB, Ghozlane A, Volant S, Bouchier C, Ma L, Vega-Rúa A, Dusfour I, Jiolle D, Paupy C, Mayanja MN, Kohl A, Lutwama JJ, Duong V, Lambrechts L

BACKGROUND: Host-associated microbes, collectively known as the microbiota, play an important role in the biology of multicellular organisms. In mosquito vectors of human pathogens, the gut bacterial microbiota influences vectorial capacity and has become the subject of intense study. In laboratory studies of vector biology, genetic effects are often inferred…

Draft Genome Sequence of the Fish Pathogen Flavobacterium columnare Genomovar III Strain PH-97028 (=CIP 109753) – Criscuolo A, Chesneau O, Clermont D, Bizet C

Flavobacterium columnare strain PH-97028 (=CIP 109753) is a genomovar III reference strain that was isolated from a diseased Ayu fish in Japan. We report here the analysis of the first available genomovar III sequence of this species to aid in identification, epidemiological tracking, and virulence studies….
