Study performs high-depth NGS on V. cholerae strains from Haiti and DR, some of which had been previously typed by less-thorough PacBio and Illumina studies. Bacterial DNA was fragmented by nebularization, size selected tight at 200bp on Pippin Prep, then prepared library (end-repair, add adapters, enrich PCR for 15 cycles) and sequenced on Illumina HiSeq.
