- ... Vibrio parahaemolyticus is the leading bacterial cause of seafood-associated gastroenteritis worldwide. Moreover, infections and outbreaks caused by V. parahaemolyticus has kept increasing over the last two decades. In this study, we investigated the genetic diversity, virulence factors and farm-to-table spread pattern of V. parahaemolyticus by analyzing 383 genomes of food-associated isolates. Th ...
