The genome sequence of Bifidobacterium longum subsp. infantis reveals adaptations for milk utilization within the infant microbiome

Following start, the breast-fed infant gastrointestinal tract is quickly colonized by a microbial consortium usually dominated by bifidobacteria. Accordingly, the full genome sequence of Bifidobacterium longum subsp. infantis ATCC15697 displays a aggressive nutrient-utilization technique concentrating on milk-borne molecules which lack a nutritive worth to the neonate.   Several chromosomal loci replicate potential adaptation to the …
