Multispacer sequence typing relapsing fever borreliae in africa

PLoS Neglected Tropical Diseases, 06/12/2012

Phylogenetic analyses of MST data suggested that B. duttonii, B. crocidurae and B. recurrentis are variants of a unique ancestral Borrelia species. MST proved to be a suitable approach for identifying and genotyping relapsing fever borreliae in Africa. It could be applied to both vectors and clinical specimens.
