Validation of random amplified polymorphic DNA assays by ribotyping as tools for epidemiological surveys of Pasteurella from animals.

Two collections of strains of Pasteurella were studied for epidemiological purposes by ribotyping and random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) assays. These strains were isolated through two different structures of animal productions: cattle and rabbit. Forty strains of P. haemolytica from cattle reared in independent breeding-herds belonged to only 3… CONTINUE READING
