Dideoxy fingerprinting is an efficient method for the detection of sequence variation in PCR-amplified DNA segments. It is a hybrid between single-strand conformation polymorphism and dideoxy sequencing, employing only one dideoxynucleotide in the sequencing reaction. Herein, we report the application of dideoxy fingerprinting to genetically type cestodes of the genus Echinococcus, utilising the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I as the gene sequence for analysis. All of the seven… CONTINUE READING
