application of high-throughput sequencing to measure the performance of commonly used selective cultivation methods for the foodborne pathogen campylobacter.campylobacter is an important foodborne human pathogen, which has traditionally been studied using a variety of selective cultivation methods. here we use next-generation sequencing to ask the following: (i) how selective are commonly used campylobacter cultivation methods relative to the initial sample and (ii) how do the specificity and sensitivity of these methods compare with one another? to answer these questions, we used 16s rrna tagged-pyrosequencing to sequence directly from a pooled fec ...201122092388
