The problem of assessing the occurrence of the food-borne pathogen Listeria monocytogenes in the food chain, and therefore the risk of exposure of the human population, is often challenging because of the limited scope of some studies. In this study the occurrence of L. monocytogenes in food from four major food groups, dairy products, meats, seafood and(More)
Pulsed-Field Gel Electrophoresis (PFGE) is a molecular subtyping method with high discriminatory power, reproducibility, and epidemiological concordance for the subtyping of Listeria monocytogenes and other bacteria. PFGE uses rare-cutting restriction enzymes (macrorestriction) that cut the genomic DNA, usually resulting in 6-25 DNA fragments ranging(More)
Building a comprehensive knowledge base of the association of Listeria monocytogenes isolates across national food chains, clinical cases, and environments can play a key role in helping control the incidence of listeriosis. Today, many food chains cross national borders and are often shared by neighboring countries. This study characterized L.(More)
