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 ...
Validation of mixed-genome microarrays as a method for genetic discrimination
(Applied and Environmental Microbiology, 2007-03)
Comparative genomic hybridizations have been used to examine genetic relationships among bacteria. The microarrays used in these experiments may have open reading frames from one or more reference strains (whole-genome ...
Optical reflectance assay for the detection of biofilm formation
(Journal of Biomedical Optics, 2005-08)
We describe the protocol for an inexpensive and nondestructive optical reflectance assay for the measurement of biofilm formation. Reflectance data are obtained using an Ocean Optics !Dunedin, Florida" USB 2000 spectrometer ...
Comparison of the reflectance and Crystal Violet assays for measurement of biofilm formation by Enterococcus
In previous work, we described a protocol for measuring biofilm formation on opaque and non-opaque surfaces using reflected light. In the present work, we used the reflectance assay to assess biofilm formation for 14 strains ...
