a north american yersinia pestis draft genome sequence: snps and phylogenetic analysis.yersinia pestis, the causative agent of plague, is responsible for some of the greatest epidemic scourges of mankind. it is widespread in the western united states, although it has only been present there for just over 100 years. as a result, there has been very little time for diversity to accumulate in this region. much of the diversity that has been detected among north american isolates is at loci that mutate too quickly to accurately reconstruct large-scale phylogenetic patterns. slowly-evo ...200717311096
