Species identification system for dermatophytes based on the DNA sequences of nuclear ribosomal internal transcribed spacer 1



Species identification system for dermatophytes based on the DNA sequences of nuclear ribosomal internal transcribed spacer 1



Nihon Ishinkin Gakkai Zasshi 42(2): 61-67



This paper describes a new and reliable species identification and classification system for dermatophytes based on the cluster analysis of nuclear ribosomal internal transcribed spacer 1 (ITS1) DNA sequences. In this system, some phenotypically similar species construct a compact monophyleic cluster which seems to be a "species". This ITS1 sequence-based species is called an "ITS1-genospecies".
