Isolation of a Rickettsiales-like organism from diseased coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch ) in Chile.
A rickettsiales-like organism was isolated in cell culture from coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch) reared in seawater net pens in the vicinity of Puerto Montt, Chile S. A. and experiencing anExpand

Development of polymerase chain reaction assays for detection, identification, and differentiation of Piscirickettsia salmonis.
A nested polymerase chain reaction (PCR) was developed to detect genomic DNA of Piscirickettsia salmonis, the causative agent of an epizootic disease in salmonids. The nested PCR assay, which usedExpand
