- ... E. coli of phylogenetic group B2 is responsible for many extraintestinal infections, posing a great threat to health. The relatively polymorphic nature of CRISPR in phylogenetically related E. coli strains makes them potential markers for bacterial typing and evolutionary studies. In the current work, we investigated the occurrence and diversity of CRISPR/Cas system and explored its potential for ...
