Structure and virulence of Legionella pneumophila populations from freshwater systems in Germany and Middle East

Marina Pecellín Monjo
Legionella pneumophila is a bacterial pathogen present in freshwater environments that can cause a severe pneumonia called Legionnaires’ disease. Molecular epidemiology based on the application of typing methods is crucial to determine the genetic relatedness between bacterial strains to understand its transmission and evolution. This thesis aimed to contribute to a more profound understanding of the genetic diversity of L. pneumophila strains and its clonal populations in different habitats and biogeographic regions. Furthermore, it aimed...
