2.5.2 - Bacteria Ribotyping
- Microbiological Techniques
In trouble shooting and tracing of contamination routes, identification below the species level is often useful. Ribotyping is a DNA fingerprinting technique enabling the discrimination of bacterial strains within the same species from each other. Species identification can be achieved at the same time, if a relevant ribopattern identification database is available. Descriptors: Bacteria Ribotyping, restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis, restriction enzymes, fingerprints (ribopatterns).
