Enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli (EHEC) causes diarrhea, often with severe complications. Rapid and discriminatory typing of EHEC using advanced molecular methods is needed for determination of the genetic relatedness of clones responsible for foodborne outbreaks and for finding out the transmission sources of the outbreaks. This study evaluated the(More)
