- PCR-based DNA fingerprinting techniques were evaluated to genotype eight diseased, particularly normal and environmental isolates of Aeromonas hydrophila. PCR-based fingerprinting method has an advantage of having repetitive sequence also called Box elements that are interspersed throughout the genome in diverse bacterial species. The BOX-PCR fingerprinting technique was evaluated for the discrimination of different isolates of A. hydrophila. All the studied isolates have shown major banding patterns ranged from 500-3000 bp. These finding could be advantageous to investigate the strain level specific fingerprints of A. hydrophila as potential genotypic markers.
