There is a need for easy, practical, reliable and robust techniques for the identification and classification of bacterial isolates to the species level as alternatives to 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis and DNA-DNA hybridization. Here, we demonstrate that multilocus sequence analysis (MLSA) of housekeeping genes is a valuable alternative technique. An MLSA study of 10 housekeeping genes (atpD, dnaK, gap, glnA, gltA, gyrB, pnp, recA, rpoB and thrC) was performed on 34 representatives of thedoi:10.1099/ijs.0.65392-0 pmid:18175710 fatcat:ucuq73heg5e7vb2dscraqkqvmm
