A Java-based tool for the design of classification microarrays
(Oxford University Press, 2008-08)
Classification microarrays are used for purposes such as identifying strains of bacteria and determining genetic relationships to understand the epidemiology of an infectious disease. For these cases, mixed microarrays, ...
BlaCMY-2 positive Inc A/C plasmids from Escherichia coli and Salmonella enterica are a distinct component of a larger lineage of plasmids
(Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy, 2009-11)
Large multidrug resistance plasmids of the A/C incompatibility complex (IncA/C) have been found in a diverse group of Gram-negative commensal and pathogenic bacteria. We present three completed sequences from IncA/C plasmids ...
Improved identification of epidemiologically related strains of Salmonella enterica by use of a fusion algorithm based on pulsed-field gel electrophoresis and multiple-locus variable-number tandemrepeat analysis
(Journal of Clinical Microbiology, 2010-11)
Pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) and multiple-locus variable-number tandem-repeat analysis (MLVA) are used to assess genetic similarity between bacterial strains. There are cases, however, when neither of these ...
