The data required for Spa typing are gathered from a single locus, unlike MLST, in which data from a number of loci are combined to represent housekeeping genes for typing of S.

The clonal relationship between the strains of Salmonella Typhimurium was analyzed using MLST.
2), esta tendencia tambien se pudo apreciar cuando se realizo el analisis por MLST. Aunque se reportan 9 secuencias tipo diferentes, ninguna se encontro en ambos hospitales.
These 15 strains, displaying representative characteristics of the pneumococci circulating in this geographical region, included the serotypes/serogroups frequently observed in the collection, as well as the most common MLST types identified.
The first aim of the present study was to use spa typing and Multilocus sequence typing (MLST) typing to investigated the phylogenetic profile of Staphylococcus aureus strains from mastitis in dairy cows, the objective was also to better determinate the clonal complex of strains.
aeruginosa strains (P43 and P69) isolated from hydrocarbon contaminated natural environments with MLST profiling, to give a complex evaluation of MLST data complemented with several virulence markers (hemolytic activity, and the presence of exoA, exoU, exoS, exoT, exoY encoding gene sequences) and to examine in vivo virulence with the determination of [LD.sub.50] (the lethal dose, 50%) values in an intraperitoneal mouse model.
A unique infection was defined as occurring each time a patient was infected with a different MLST type of C.
Among 30 EHEC O157 isolates analyzed by MLST, 27 strains generated sequence tracings acceptable for an ST number available from the online MLST database (http:// www.mlst.net/).
MLST method revealed that all isolates have the same sequence type "ST80." Full analyses of molecular typing results suggest that isolates belong to the CA-MRSA ST80 clone.
