An optimized binary typing panel improves the typing capability for Campylobacter jejuni
MetadataShow full item record
Campylobacter jejuni is a frequent bacterial pathogen causing gastroenteritis worldwide. We report here a mathematically optimized combination of 10 loci selected from 2 previously published binary typing panels. The optimized combination offers advantages of higher differentiation capability, simplicity, cost-effectiveness, and portability for routine surveillance and outbreak investigations of C. jejuni.
