    ' “A driving force for doing this project was the observation that certain forms of the bacteria can be more invasive than others,” adds Dr. Steven E. Schutzer, lead author. By determining all genome sequences of B. burgdorferi, the researchers are providing a foundation for novel detection of Lyme disease, diagnostic approaches and prevention strategies. The timing is critical, as disease occurrence has become widespread over the past decade throughout the United States and part of Europe.'
