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...
- Phylogenetic analysis of vibrios and related species by means of atpA gene sequencesCristiane C Thompson
Instituto Oswaldo Cruz, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
