Highlights • Recombination between phages CTX and RS1, and point mutations in the cholera toxin gene ctxB, generate new CTXs. • Population shift in Vibrio cholerae is accompanied by a change in CTX, particularly in the gene ctxB. • V. cholerae uses a genetic mechanism to replace an old CTX with a new CTX. • Population shifts in V. cholerae might be caused by changes in existing immunity. • Understanding the selection of a particular strain will help us to combat cholera.
