Clinical C. difficile with Trehalose Utilization Variants
This repository contains the analysis for a manuscript published at Open Forum Infectious Disease in January 2020. The focus of this work is the analysis of the association between trehalose utilization variants in clinical C. difficile isolates and infection severity outcome in patients.
The paper is available at Open Forum Infectious Diseases.
