    Abstract

    Campylobacter is the most commonly reported cause of bacterial diarrhoeal disease in humans in the EU since 2005. The major source of infection is contaminated poultry meat with most broiler batches at slaughter colonized with Campylobacter. C. jejuni and C. coli are responsible for the isolates vast majority of infections, which may subsequently lead to serious neuropathologies such as Guillain-Barré syndrome. The aim of this study was to take advantage of whole genome sequencing (WGS) to in-depth characterize a subset of 16 C. jejuni and C. coli isolates from broilers from five farms.
