The diversity of 55 Salmonella-specific bacteriophages isolated from 191 fecal samples of poultry and swine from farms located in diverse geographic areas of Spain was determined using lysis profiling, DNA restriction and random amplification of polymorphic DNA (RAPD-PCR). Among them, lysis profiling and RAPD-PCR exhibited 100% typeability and DNA restriction 96%, with discriminatory power of 0.978 (± 0.016), 0.938 (± 0.028) and 0.982 (± 0.013), respectively. The highest concordance (0.974) was… CONTINUE READING
