Abstract

To understand the colonization rates and proportional density of Escherichia coli, E. coli multilocus sequence type 131, and ST131-H30, self-collected fecal swabs from a cohort of veterans and respective household members were subject to bacterial DNA extraction and 16S rRNA gene sequencing. A large proportion of the cohort were colonized with some type of E. coli, but only a small portion carried the virulent subclone ST131-H30. Results from this study can support future research that aims to identify determinants of E. coli ST131-H30 colonization.
