Revealing the Mosaic Nature of Salmonella Genomes Using Microarrays

Authors: Muna F. Anjum
Abstract: The accumulation of whole genome sequences has truly brought forth the strength of microarray technology. Thereby, DNA microarray technologies have gained the ability to generate and provide efficient access to vast genetic information suited not only for comparative genomics, but also for the identification and subclassification of microbes. Furthermore, DNA-microarrays have opened the possibility to probe bacterial transcriptomes at a whole genome level. This review describes the application of DNA microarrays to define the genome content within the genus Salmonella. Also, the review will discuss the diagnostic potential of the array technology in terms of use in routine reference laboratory for seroand genotyping.
