An Insight into the Aliivibrio genus. A comparative study on relationships and traits of species within the genus Aliivibrio
Few studies have emphasized on the genus Aliivibrio as a whole and lags behind the better known Vibrio. Nevertheless, the Aliivibrio has for several decades been associated with species expressing bioluminescence like the Aliivibrio fischeri, but has also been linked to costly diseases in the fish farming industry such as Aliivibrio salmonicida. In an attempt to gain insight in the genus on a broad level, Aliivibrio genomes were sequenced, assembled and annotated prior to phylogenetic and pan-genome analysis. Additionally, mapping of genes related to quorum sensing and the CRISPR defense system was performed in a comparative manner. Works like this have never been carried out before on this scale for the Aliivibrio and is needed to better understand the complexity of this genus.
