- Comparison of commercial systems for extraction of nucleic acids from DNA/RNA respiratory pathogensGenyan Yang
Division of Blood Disorders, National Center for Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Atlanta, GA 30329, USA
J Virol Methods 171:195-9. 2011..These findings suggest that systems differed in nucleic acid recovery, reproducibility, and linearity in a pathogen specific manner...
- Legionella nagasakiensis sp. nov., isolated from water samples and from a patient with pneumoniaGenyan Yang
Division of Blood Disorders, National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Atlanta, GA, USA
Int J Syst Evol Microbiol 62:284-8. 2012..These characterizations suggest that the isolates represent a novel species, for which the name Legionella nagasakiensis sp. nov. is proposed; the type strain is CDC-1796-JAP-E(T) ( = ATCC BAA-1557(T) = JCM 15315(T))...
- Evaluation of tetramethylrhodamine and black hole quencher 1 labeled probes and five commercial amplification mixes in TaqMan real-time RT-PCR assays for respiratory pathogensGenyan Patrick Yang
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Division of Bacterial Diseases, Respiratory Diseases Branch, Atlanta, GA 30333, USA
J Virol Methods 162:288-90. 2009..2-2.8-fold lower than those of the TAMRA probes. All kits amplified the specific targets, but differed in their sensitivity by up to 3 orders of magnitude. The AgPath-ID kit provided the best overall performance for all assay targets...
