Abstract

Food-associated outbreaks linked to enteropathogenic are of concern to public health. Pigs and their meat are recognized risk factors for transmission of . This study aimed to describe the comparative genomics of along with a number of misclassified isolates, now constituting the recently described . The latter was originally cultured from an environmental sample taken at a pig slaughterhouse. Unique features were identified in the genome of including a novel integrative conjugative element (ICE), denoted as ICE contained within a 255 kbp region of plasticity. In addition, a zebrafish embryo infection model was adapted and applied to assess the virulence potential among isolates including .
