Use of repetitive element palindromic PCR (rep-PCR) for the epidemiologic discrimination of foodborne pathogens.

Abstract

The use of defined primers for polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification of interspersed repetitive DNA elements present at distinct locations in prokaryotic genomes is referred to as repetitive element sequence based-polymerase chain reaction (rep-PCR). The initial discovery of repetitive extragenic palindromic (REP) elements occurred in the genomes of… (More)
