The use of pathogen genome sequence data for the control and management of infections remains an ongoing challenge. We describe a broadly applicable, web-enabled approach that can be used to develop bacteria-specific polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assays. Salmonella enterica Paratyphi A has emerged as a major cause of enteric fever in Asia. Culture-based(More)
The cDNAs of two C-type lectins in grass carp Ctenopharyngodon idella, galactose-binding lectin (galbl) and mannose-binding lectin (mbl), were cloned and analysed in this study. Both of them exhibited the highest expression level in liver, whereas their expression pattern differed in early phase of embryonic development. Following exposure to grass carp(More)
Using a microagglutination test, the prevalence of antibodies against three species (10 groups) of Legionella was determined in 300 healthy donors, 120 non-pneumonic patients with immunodeficiency and 158 patients with pneumonia. The results showed that there were significant differences among all groups on positive rate and GMT in three groups. Lp6 was the(More)
Residential exposure to radon has been considered an important environmental risk factor for lung cancer. Since 1986, U.S. EPA has recommended that all dwellings below the third floor be tested for the presence of radon and be mitigated to reduce indoor radon in homes with levels exceeding 148 Bq m(-3). In order to evaluate the effectiveness of New York(More)
