comparison of multilocus sequence typing (mlst) and repetitive sequence-based pcr (rep-pcr) fingerprinting for differentiation of campylobacter jejuni isolated from broiler in chiang mai, thailand.we compared rapid fingerprinting using repetitive sequence-based pcr (rep-pcr) for subtyping campylobacter jejuni isolates to the widely used multilocus sequence typing (mlst). representative c. jejuni isolates (n = 16) from broilers were analyzed using mlst and rep-pcr. both techniques demonstrated an equal discriminatory power of 0.8917, and 9 subgroups were identified. clonal identification of all 16 isolates was identical for both techniques. the rep-pcr as described in this study may be use ...201223124335
