Abstract

A variety of molecular typing techniques have been developed to investigate the clonal relationship among bacterial isolates, including those associated with nosocomial infections. In this study, the authors evaluated whole-genome mapping as a tool to investigate the genetic relatedness between Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolates, including metallo beta-lactamase-positive outbreak isolates.
