Genomic Survey of Bordetella pertussis Diversity, United States, 2000-2013.

Authors: Weigand, Michael R and Williams, Margaret M and Peng, Yanhui and Kania, Dane and Pawloski, Lucia C and Tondella, Maria L

We characterized 170 complete genome assemblies from clinical Bordetella pertussis isolates representing geographic and temporal diversity in the United States. These data capture genotypic shifts, including increased pertactin deficiency, occurring amid the current pertussis disease resurgence and provide a foundation for needed research to direct future public health control strategies.
