So too are the genomes of the bacterial pathogens that the body louse transmits to its human hosts: Rickettsia prowazekii (which causes epidemic typhus), Borrelia recurrentis (the agent of relapsing fever) and Bartonella quintana (which causes trench fever).
Entre ellas se encuentran la Rickettsia prowazekii, que vive en el intestino del piojo y que causa el tifo, y la Bartonella quintana, que ocasiona la fiebre de las trincheras.
