Gut Pathogens

Featured article: WGS-based detection of antimicrobial resistance and virulence in non-typhoidal Salmonella enterica isolated from wildlife

Salmonella enterica is the leading cause of foodborne illness in the United States accounting for approximately 1.2 million infections, 23,000 hospitalizations and 450 deaths annually. Over the past few decades, Salmonella has acquired new virulence determinants that influence host-tropism which helps these organisms to adapt to a wide range of hosts … Whole genome sequencing (WGS) of foodborne pathogens could be adopted as an effective and rapid surveillance tool.”

Aims and scope

Gut Pathogens publishes research on both biological and clinical aspects of the pathogens, commensals and functional microbiota of the gut, including probiotic bacteria and yeasts and their products. The journal also considers timely reports on the novel aspects of genomics, metagenomics, microbiota profiling and systems biology, as well as studies identifying new genome sequences of gut microbes.
