Abstract

Several PCR based methods such as AP-PCR, ERIC, ERIC-PCR, REP-PCR and RAPD have
been used for bacterial strain differentiation and identification. These methods are reliable, rapid
and economical. In the present study, out of 30 poultry isolates of Salmonella differentiated by APPCR,
25 profiles were obtained. The study indicates that AP-PCR is an efficient tool for strain
differentiation and can be used for molecular epidemiological studies.
