DNA fingerprinting of medically important microorganisms by use of PCR.
Selected segments of any DNA molecule can be amplified exponentially by PCR. This technique provides a powerful tool to detect and identify minimal numbers of microorganisms. PCR is applicable bothExpand

Tracing isolates of bacterial species by multilocus variable number of tandem repeat analysis (MLVA).
All bacterial genomes contain multiple loci of repetitive DNA. Repeat unit sizes and repeat sequences may vary when multiple loci are considered for different isolates of an individual microbialExpand

Protection against Plasmodium falciparum malaria in chimpanzees by immunization with the conserved pre-erythrocytic liver-stage antigen 3
In humans, sterile immunity against malaria can be consistently induced through exposure to the bites of thousands of irradiated infected mosquitoes. The same level of protection has yet to beExpand

The role of short sequence repeats in epidemiologic typing.
Short sequence repeats (SSRs), also known as variable number of tandem repeats or micro-satellites, are inherently unstable entities that undergo frequent variation in the number of repeated unitsExpand

Novel reactions of RNAase P with a tRNA-like structure in turnip yellow mosaic virus RNA
A quasi-continuous double hellix, containing a pseudoknot and ending in a single-stranded region which contains CCA, can be formed at the 3' terminus of the genomic RNAs of certain plant viruses. M1Expand

Legionnaire's disease and saunas
In January, 1996, a 64-year-old man was admitted with pneumonia to a regional hospital in Haarlem, Netherlands. Culture of bronchial lavage was positive for Legionella pneumophila serogroup 1. He wasExpand

Novel Technology to study co-evolution of humans and Staphylococcus aureus: consequences for interpreting the biology of colonisation and infection.
Human nasal carriage of Staphylococcus aureus is a textbook example of an apparently neutral interaction between humans and a bacterial species that can still lead to (severe) opportunisticExpand
