Primordial origin and diversification of plasmids in Lyme disease agent bacteria.

BMC genomics. 2018-03-27; 19.1: 218.

With approximately one-third of their genomes consisting of linear and circular plasmids, the Lyme disease agent cluster of species has the most complex genomes among known bacteria. We report here a comparative analysis of plasmids in eleven Borreliella (also known as Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato) species.
