Literature and publications list are updated with 11 publications

With the start of our RMM Group website, we also started to collect interesting publications related to the field of  Rapid Microbiological Methods. This list will be updated periodically. Now the following publications are added:

  • Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption Ionization-Time of Flight Mass Spectrometry for the Identification of Clinically Relevant Bacteria
  • Multilocus DNA Sequence Comparisons Rapidly Identify Pathogenic Molds
  • Population Genomics and the Bacterial Species Concept
  • Comparison of an Automated Ribotyping System to Restriction Endonuclease Analysis and Pulsed-Field Gel Electrophoresis for Differentiating Vancomycin-Resistant Enterococcus faecium Isolates
  • Universal species concept: pipe dream or a step toward unifying biology? 
  • Taxonomic Note: A Place for DNA-DNA Reassociation and 16s rRNA Sequence Analysis in the Present Species Definition in Bacteriology
  • Systematics and the origin of species: An introduction
  • The promise of a DNA taxonomy
  • The Role of 16S rRNA Gene Sequencing in Identification of Microorganisms Misidentified by Conventional Methods 
  • Variation in Bacterial Interspecific Genetic Distances- New Rules for Interpretation of 16S rDNA Sequences?
  • Evaluation of the Colorimetric VITEK 2 Card for Identification of Gram-Negative Nonfermentative Rods: Comparison to 16S rRNA Gene Sequencing

If you know any further interesting publications or literature which is possibly helpful to our members, we would welcome this information. Please forward it to
