The rDNA spacer regions provide easily accessible, polymorphic genetic loci for both species and strain identification of dermatophyte fungi. Nucleotide substitutions and length polymorphisms in the internal transcribed spacers (ITS) can be indexed by sequencing or by PCR restriction endonuclease analysis, and provide a rapid and accurate means of… (More)
