Molecular method for the characterization of Coxiella burnetii from clinical and environmental samples: variability of genotypes in Spain

With the data presented here, cattle seem not to participate in the transmission of C. burnetii to humans in the samples studied, while sheep, goats, wild boar, rats and ticks share genotypes with the human population
