Abstract:
We demonstrate that the "HOOF-Print" assay provides high power to discriminate among Brucella isolates collected on a small spatial scale (within Portugal). Additionally, we illustrate how haplotype identification using non-random association among markers allows resolution of B. melitensis biovars (1 and 3). We recommend that future studies use haplotype identification when analyzing multilocus population genetic data to help discriminate among microbial isolates such as Brucella.
