Specimens of human faeces were tested by a rapid strategy for detection of Campylobacter jejuni lineages by the presence of specific single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) based on the C. jejuni multi locus sequence typing (MLST) scheme. This strategy was derived from analysis of the MLST databases to identify clonal complex specific SNPs followed by the design of real-time PCR assays to enable identification of six major C. jejuni clonal complexes associated with cases of human infection.
