    • Evidence for a lineage of virulent bacteriophages that target Campylobacter 

      Timms, Andrew R; Cambray-Young, Joanna; Scott, Andrew E; Petty, Nicola K; Connerton, Phillippa L; Clarke, Louise; Seeger, Kathy et al. (2010-03-30)
      Abstract Background Our understanding of the dynamics of genome stability versus gene flux within bacteriophage lineages is limited. Recently, there has been a renewed interest in the use of bacteriophages as 'therapeutic' ...
    • Genomic analysis of $\textit{Salmonella enterica}$ serovar Typhimurium from wild passerines in England and Wales 

      Mather, Alison E; Lawson, Becki; de, Pinna Elizabeth; Wigley, Paul; Parkhill, Julian; Thomson, Nicholas R; Page, Andrew J et al. (American Society for Microbiology, 2016-09-09)
      Passerine salmonellosis is a well-recognised disease of birds in the order Passeriformes, including common songbirds such as finches and sparrows, caused by infection with $\textit{Salmonella enterica}$ serovar Typhimurium. ...
    • Genomic and phenotypic variation in epidemic-spanning Salmonella enterica serovar Enteritidis isolates 

      Betancor, Laura; Yim, Lucia; Fookes, Maria; Martinez, Araci; Thomson, Nicholas R; Ivens, Alasdair; Peters, Sarah Elizabeth et al. (2009-11-18)
      Abstract Background Salmonella enterica serovar Enteritidis (S. Enteritidis) has caused major epidemics of gastrointestinal infection in many different countries. In this study we investigate genome divergence and pathogenic ...
    • Salmonella bongori provides insights into the evolution of the Salmonellae. 

      Fookes, Maria; Schroeder, Gunnar N; Langridge, Gemma C; Blondel, Carlos J; Mammina, Caterina; Connor, Thomas R; Seth-Smith, Helena et al. (2011-08-18)
    • Transcriptome and proteome analysis of Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium systemic infection of wild type and immune-deficient mice. 

      Oshota, Olusegun; Conway, Max; Fookes, Maria; Schreiber, Fernanda; Chaudhuri, Roy R; Yu, Lu; Morgan, Fiona JE et al. (Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2017-01)
      Salmonella enterica are a threat to public health. Current vaccines are not fully effective. The ability to grow in infected tissues within phagocytes is required for S. enterica virulence in systemic disease. As the ...
    • Vibrio cholerae serogroup O139: isolation from cholera patients and asymptomatic household family members in Bangladesh between 2013 and 2014 

      Chowdhury, Fahima; Mather, Alison E; Begum, Yasmin Ara; Asaduzzaman, Muhammad; Baby, Nabilah; Sharmin, Salma; Biswas, Rajib et al. (PLOS, 2015-11-12)
      BACKGROUND: Cholera is endemic in Bangladesh, with outbreaks reported annually. Currently, the majority of epidemic cholera reported globally is El Tor biotype Vibrio cholerae isolates of the serogroup O1. However, in ...
