Some Salmonella strains are more virulent than others (i.e., they cause more illnesses, and/or more severe ones), but the determinants for this variation are not well understood. We are combining genetically-based and epidemiological analyses to understand the genetic determinants of such variations, and our findings suggest that there may be natural targets in surveillance programs to more effectively reduce the burden of illness from foodborne Salmonella.
