Pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) was used to analyse 147 isolates collected in two regions of Quebec province (Estrie and Montreal) between March 1998 and Feb. 1999, to determine the utility of molecular strain typing for a population-based collection of Campylobacter jejuni and to compare directly the discriminatory power of SmaI and KpnI restriction digests. With a combination of epidemiological criteria including space and time plus molecular strain typing, 49% of isolates from Estrie… CONTINUE READING
