Description:

Access to the article is free, however registration and sign-in are required: The pathogenic bacterium Neisseria meningitidis is the cause of meningococcal meningitis. Although a vaccine is available for Neisseria of serogroups A and C, there is no vaccine available for serogroup B. In a Perspective, Nassif reports on the sequencing of the complete genome of N. meningitidis type B strain MC58 (Tettelin et al.) and the mining of this genome to identify highly conserved surface proteins that may be valuable as vaccine antigens (Pizza et al.).
