Vibrio cholerae, the causative agent of cholera, is considered to be an important model organism for studying infectious diseases. However, compared to its pathogenic potential, much less is known about the bacterium’s lifestyle in its primary habitat, the aquatic environment. Such environmental habitats often contribute to pathogen emergence, which is frequently accomplished through the acquisition of novel genetic information by means of horizontal gene transfer (HGT). Natural competence for transformation as a mode of HGT plays a key role in bacterial evolution and V.
