A phage typing system using a group of 11 closely related phage (as judged by Southern analysis and restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis) was able to distinguish at least six phage types in Salmonella heidelberg of human and animal origin. Restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis using cosmid probes from S. heidelberg confirmed that… CONTINUE READING
