Report of the ad hoc committee for the re-evaluation of the species definition in bacteriology.
An ad hoc committee for the re-evaluation of the species definition in bacteriology met in Gent, Belgium, in February 2002. The committee made various recommendations regarding the species definition
Taxonomy of the genus Acinetobacter with the recognition of Acinetobacter baumannii sp. nov., Acinetobacter haemolyticus sp. nov., Acinetobacter johnsonii sp. nov., and Acinetobacter junii sp. nov.
Using deoxyribonucleic acid hybridization (S1 nuclease method), 12 hybridization groups (genospecies) containing 74 strains among 85 Acinetobacter strains studied could be unambiguously identified.
Multilocus Sequence Typing of Klebsiella pneumoniae Nosocomial Isolates
A multilocus sequence typing (MLST) scheme was developed for Klebsiella pneumoniae and provided unambiguous data useful for the epidemiology of K. pneumoniae isolates.
The genus Serratia.

WHO Collaborating Centre for Reference and Research on Salmonella ANTIGENIC FORMULAE OF THE SALMONELLA SEROVARS
Molecular diagnostics redefines where classical microbiology fits into the modern clinical diagnostic algorithm. By decreasing the time required for results from days to minutes, quantitation, as
DNA relatedness among the pathovars of Pseudomonas syringae and description of Pseudomonas tremae sp. nov. and Pseudomonas cannabina sp. nov. (ex Sutic and Dowson 1959).
A total of 48 pathovars of Pseudomonas syringae and eight related species were studied by DNA-DNA hybridization (S1 nuclease method) and ribotyping. The existence of nine discrete genomospecies was
Virulent Clones of Klebsiella pneumoniae: Identification and Evolutionary Scenario Based on Genomic and Phenotypic Characterization
The results reveal the existence of important virulent clones associated with specific infections and provide an evolutionary framework for research into the links between clones, virulence and other genomic features in K. pneumoniae.
Nomenclature and taxonomy of the genus Salmonella.
The present article explains the nomenclatural consequences of Opinion 80, together with a clear presentation of the taxonomy that results when applying the currently widely accepted interpretation that the genus Salmonella currently includes only two species.
