Bacteria were isolated from the skin of four amphibian species in the Eastern US. These bacteria were tested for their ability to inhibit the fungal pathogen Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis (Bd) via in vitro challenge assays. 40 of these bacteria were sent for whole genome sequencing. The aim of this study was to identify genomic differences among the isolates and generate hypotheses about the underpinnings of Bd growth inhibition.
