Sampling of agricultural and natural environments in two US states (Colorado and Florida) yielded 18 Listeria-like isolates that could not be assigned to previously described species using traditional methods. Using whole-genome sequencing and traditional phenotypic methods, we identified five novel species, each with a genome-wide average BLAST nucleotide(More)
With this paper we present algorithms to generate and test DNA code words that avoid unwanted cross hybridizations. Methods from the theory of codes based on formal languages are employed. These algorithms are implemented in user-friendly software, CODEGEN, which contains a collection of language-theoretic objects adaptable to various related tasks. Lists(More)
