Multi-locus variable number tandem repeat analysis of 7th pandemic Vibrio cholerae Full Text
BMC Microbiology, 05/25/2012
Lam C et al. – MLVA is highly discriminatory in differentiating 7th pandemic V. cholerae isolates and MLVA data was most useful in resolving the genetic relationships among isolates within groups previously defined by SNPs. Thus MLVA is best used in conjunction with SNP typing in order to best determine the evolutionary relationships among the 7th pandemic V. cholerae isolates and for longer term epidemiological typing.
