(Institut Pasteur) Researchers at the Institut Pasteur and the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, in collaboration with international institutions, recently published two studies tracing the history of cholera outbreaks from the last 60 years.

These findings help to improve understanding of how the cholera bacterium circulates, and to anticipate the risk of new outbreaks emerging.
