Abstract

Nucleotide sequences specific for a range of species were defined by computer-assisted sequence comparisons of small subunit ribosomal RNA. A polymerase chain reaction-based sequencing strategy was used to demonstrate that the 16S rRNA sequence can be used for the rapid identification of mycobacterial isolates. Identification at the species level can be obtained within 2 d, requiring < 10000 bacteria. This procedure reliably differentiates spp. which are difficult to identify by classical methods, such as and .
