A retrotransposon-derived probe for discriminating strains of Cryptococcus neoformans


Hybridization of digested DNA to probes derived from repeated sequences has proven to be an extremely powerful epidemiologic tool for studying the relatedness of fungi. The dispersed nature of these sequences throughout the genome provides the discriminatory power for distinguishing two independent isolates from each other based on banding pattern. The… (More)
