Ecology, Virulence and Genomics of Legionella pneumophila Isolates from the West Bank, Palestine

Ashraf R. N. Zayed
Legionella pneumophila is an environmental bacterium and a human pathogen causing life-threating outbreaks of an atypical pneumonia called Legionnaires’ disease. This study aimed to understand the diversity of L. pneumophila isolates, their clonal populations and the environmental driver of their abundance and prevalence in the West Bank. For this, a multi-annual seasonal sampling of nine drinking water sites in the West Bank were performed with a detailed recording of physico-chemical parameters. A total of 180...
