Abstract

To determine whether fluorescent amplified-fragment length polymorphism (FAFLP) analysis is an unbiased genome sampling technique, data were analysed from three different primer combinations, amplifying three independent fragment subsets from 123 isolates of . Using these data, dendrograms were generated with near-identical topologies that identified the same invasive clones of ET37 and ET5 and also identified the same outbreak clusters.
