Data from: Costs of CRISPR-Cas mediated resistance in Streptococcus thermophilus

Pedro F. Vale, Guillaume Lafforgue, François Gatchitch, Rozenn Gardan, Sylvain Moineau & Sylvain Gandon
CRISPR-Cas is a form of adaptive sequence-specific immunity in microbes. This system offers unique opportunities for the study of coevolution between bacteria and their viral pathogens, bacteriophages. A full understanding of the coevolutionary dynamics of CRISPR-Cas requires knowing the magnitude of the cost of resisting infection. Here, using the gram-positive bacterium Streptococcus thermophilus and its associated virulent phage 2972, a well-established model system harbouring at least two type II functional CRISPR-Cas systems, we obtained different...
