AIMS To evaluate the intraspecific diversity of the fish pathogen Flavobacterium columnare. METHODS AND RESULTS Genetic variability among Fl. columnare isolates was characterized using restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis of the 16S rDNA gene, intergenic spacer region (ISR) sequencing, and amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) fingerprinting. Thirty Fl. columnare cultures isolated from different fish species and geographical origins as well as reference strains were… CONTINUE READING
