plague genome: the black death decoded. 201122031418
A draft genome of Yersinia pestis from victims of the Black Death.Technological advances in DNA recovery and sequencing have drastically expanded the scope of genetic analyses of ancient specimens to the extent that full genomic investigations are now feasible and are quickly becoming standard. This trend has important implications for infectious disease research because genomic data from ancient microbes may help to elucidate mechanisms of pathogen evolution and adaptation for emerging and re-emerging infections. Here we report a reconstructed ancient genome ...201121993626
a scottish doctor's association with the discovery of the plague bacillus.plague killed at least a quarter of the population of europe in 1348. this was the first wave of the epidemic known as 'the black death' which continued for two years and then recurred sporadically till the late 17th century. in london in 1603, 22.6% of the population died from plague and in the outbreak known as the great plague of london in 1694 there were over 70,000 deaths out of a population of 460,000. many english villages were completely wiped out at this time. marseilles suffered severe ...19958693337
the temporal dynamics of the fourteenth-century black death: new evidence from english ecclesiastical records.recent research has questioned whether the european black death of 1347-1351 could possibly have been caused by the bubonic plague bacillus yersinia pestis, as has been assumed for over a century. central to the arguments both for and against involvement of y. pestis has been a comparison of the temporal dynamics observed in confirmed outbreaks of bubonic plague in early-20th-century india, versus those reconstructed for the black death from english church records--specifically, from lists of in ...200314655870
