In many countries, coagulase-negative staphylococci (CNS) are currently the most common cause of intramammary infection in lactating cows. In order to elucidate the importance of various CNS species in udder health and milk quality, further research conducted on the species level is required. Phenotypic identification of CNS species appears to be unreliable and more accurate and reproducible genotypic methods are needed. In the current study, use of amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP… CONTINUE READING
