Since the 1930s, traditional methods of strain identification based on serotyping and phage typing have been the foundation of salmonella epidemiology. Although the incidence of diseases such as typhoid and paratyphoid has decreased in recent years, food-poisoning caused by non-typhoidal salmonella strains has now reached epidemic proportions in many countries, despite improvements in sanitation and hygiene. Precise strain identification is an essential prerequisite for epidemiological… CONTINUE READING
