Epidemiological typing of bovine streptococci by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis


, : Epidemiological typing of bovine streptococci by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis. Epidemiology and Infection 123(2): 317-324

Pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) was used to investigate the epidemiology of streptococcal mastitis in dairy cattle. Streptococcal isolates were collected from cows on 6 farms in Victoria, Australia, during the 1997-98 lactation period.
