Abstract

These studies have demonstrated that PFGE and SAFLP can be used independently for the differentiation of MR S. Typhimurium from humans and food animals. However, when used in combination, SAFLP can provide a format for broad epidemiologic groupings. These groupings can be further subdivided by PFGE to provide detailed information on putative strain relationships at the genotypic level.
