DNA probes for the identification of Nocardia asteroides.

DNA probes for the rapid identification of Nocardia asteroides were obtained by constructing a genomic library of strain GUH-2 in the lambda cloning vector EMBL3. Of 50 recombinant clones tested, 2 were identified that hybridized with 31% of the N. asteroides strains in a reference collection without cross-hybridization with related members of the… CONTINUE READING
