Vibrio cholera is the species of bacterium that causes cholera, an acute diarrheal disease of humans and other animals worldwide. Which of the following would be the most likely reason for sequencing the genome of this bacterium?

Its genome is very similar to that of humans.

The study of its genome may give clues to the origin of drug resistance in bacteria in hospitals.

V. cholera causes disease in humans and would therefore be a good model organism.

The study of its genome may help in the development of novel treatments (e.g., new antibiotics) effective against this organism.
