    Cristiane C Thompson
    Laboratory of Molecular Genetics of Microrganisms, Oswaldo Cruz Institute, Oswaldo Cruz Fundation, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
    Infect Genet Evol 11:1951-6. 2011
    ..This study showed that distinct V. cholerae O1 were the determinants of cholera outbreaks in Ghana. Thus, in endemic regions, such as Africa, cholera can be caused by various V. cholerae O1 genotypes...
  2. ncbi Phylogenetic analysis of vibrios and related species by means of atpA gene sequences
    Cristiane C Thompson
    Instituto Oswaldo Cruz, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
    Int J Syst Evol Microbiol 57:2480-4. 2007
    ..The intraspecies variation in the atpA gene sequence was about 99% sequence similarity. The results showed clearly that atpA gene sequences are a suitable alternative for the identification and phylogenetic study of vibrios...

    Cristiane C Thompson
    Laboratory of Molecular Genetics of Microorganisms, Oswaldo Cruz Institute, FIOCRUZ, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
    Infect Genet Evol 11:1798-804. 2011
    ..In our hands, a Mycoplasma species is defined as a group of strains that share ≥ 97% DNA identity in MLSA, ≥ 93.9% AAI and ≤ 8 in Karlin genomic signature. This new definition may be useful to advance the taxonomy of Mycoplasmas...
