In the comparative pathogenomics era of intracellular bacteria

Artistic representation of how pathogenomics can outline virulence factors and their contribution to overall bacterial pathogenesis. The illustration shows the comparison of repertoires of Ehrlichia spp. candidate type IV effectors, prepared using Circos software (Krzywinski et al., Genome Res 2009), and superimposed on a scanning electron microscopy picture (40 000x magnification) of Ehrlichia ruminantium (yellow) adhering to host endothelial cell (purple). Noroy et al.
