Genotyping of Campylobacter jejuni using seven single-nucleotide polymorphisms in combination with flaA short variable region sequencing.

This investigation describes the development of a generally applicable, bioinformatics-driven, single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) genotyping assay for the common bacterial gastrointestinal pathogen Campylobacter jejuni. SNPs were identified in silico using the program 'Minimum SNPs', which selects for polymorphisms providing the greatest resolution of… CONTINUE READING
