[analysis of diversity and identification of the genovariants of plague agent strains from mongolian foci].the genetic diversity of yersinia pestis strains from the mongolian natural plague foci has been investigated. a total of 32 strains isolated from western, eastern, and central aimaks, as well as from the territory of the gobi region, have been studied. twenty-four strains belong to the main y. pestis subspecies, while eight belong to other subspecies. there is only one strain of biovar medievalis (genovariant 2.med1) among the strains of the main subspecies, while the rest of the subspecies bel ...201526027368
yersinia pestis lineages in mongolia.whole genome sequencing allowed the development of a number of high resolution sequence based typing tools for yersinia (y.) pestis. the application of these methods on isolates from most known foci worldwide and in particular from china and the former soviet union has dramatically improved our understanding of the population structure of this species. in the current view, y. pestis including the non or moderate human pathogen y. pestis subspecies microtus emerged from yersinia pseudotuberculosi ...201222363455
plague in mongolia.mongolia is a country of central asia that occupies 1,564,116 km(2) and has a population of 2.7 million people. the geography of mongolia is varied and has a continental climate. plague, caused by the bacterium yersinia pestis, is enzootic in wild rodent populations over large rural areas of mongolia. natural plague foci have occurred over 28.3% of mongolia, and 47.1% of these foci are highly active. highly active plague foci exist mainly in the western part of mongolia. a total of 27% of all pl ...201020158334
