Specific identification and differentiation of the 2 subspecies of the fish pathogen Francisella noatunensis, namely, F. noatunensis subsp. noatunensis and F. noatunensis subsp. orientalis, remains a major diagnostic challenge. Following whole-genome sequencing and analysis of representatives of all major subclades of the genus Francisella, specific genomic regions were identified for each of the subspecies of this fish pathogen. Two specific real-time quantitative PCR assays, directed at hypothetical genes within these regions were developed. Specificity was confirmed by lack of signal and cross-reactivity with the closest relative, F. philomiragia, and other common bacterial fish pathogens. Both assays, used either as monoplex or multiplex, have a limit of detection of 10 genome equivalents. The quantitative sensitivity of the assays was not affected by the presence of kidney tissues or DNA from Atlantic cod Gadus morhua or tilapia Oreochromis sp.
