Molecular Characterization of Streptococcus agalactiae Isolates from Human Cases of Invasive Disease Collected in Alberta, Canada: 2003-2013Download
Capsular polysaccharide (CPS) surrounding the Group B streptococcus (GBS) is a major virulence factor for GBS. There are 10 recognized CPS types (Ia, Ib and II-IX). A GBS isolate is non-typeable (NT) when CPS cannot be identified as one of the 10 CPS types. All genes required for CPS synthesis...
Choroideremia (CHM) is an inherited X-linked retinal dystrophy that causes hemizygous males to develop nyctalopia and a progressive loss of their peripheral visual field until only central vision remains. At the end stages of the degeneration, central acuity is also affected. The onset and rate...
Background Single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) genotyping assays normally give rise to certain percents of no-calls; the problem becomes severe when the target organisms, such as cattle, do not have a high resolution genomic sequence. Missing SNP genotypes, when related to target traits, would...
