Reliable molecular detection of Mycobacterium ulcerans in environmental samples is essential to study the ecology and transmission of this important human pathogen. Variable number tandem repeat (VNTR) typing is a valuable method for distinguishing M. ulcerans isolates from different geographic regions and for distinguishing M. ulcerans from other members of the Mycobacterium marinum/M. ulcerans complex, but its application to environmental samples has not yet been evaluated systematically… CONTINUE READING
