Evaluation of whole-genome sequencing as a genotyping tool for Campylobacter jejuni in comparison with pulsed-field gel electrophoresis and flaA typing
Campylobacter jejuni is a leading cause of foodborne illness, with poultry and poultry products being leading sources of infection. Epidemiological efforts to trace Campylobacter can be challenging because of the extreme genetic diversity of this bacterium relative to other foodborne pathogens. To enhance tracking and epidemiological efforts, whole-genome sequencing has been used for other foodborne pathogens but not yet been evaluated for practicality with Campylobacter. Thus, the purpose ofdoi:10.3382/ps.2012-02695 pmid:23300325 fatcat:4deuwdxnyvfcbnlqj7omtavoh4
