Genetic Characterization of Trichomonas vaginalis Isolates using Multilocus Sequence Typing
Journal of Clinical Microbiology, 08/02/2012
Cornelius DC et al. – Population genetic and phylogenetic analyses determined that T. vaginalis population structure is strongly influenced by recombination and is composed of two separate populations that may be non–clonal. MLST is useful for investigating the epidemiology, genetic diversity, and population structure of T. vaginalis.
