Computer-Assisted Strategies for Identifying Campylobacteria in Routine Laboratories

  • Stephen L. W. On


The term “campylobacteria” may be used to refer to a variety of taxa which are morphologically similar.5 These organisms are associated with a wide range of diseases which affect humans and animals, and are of significant clinical and economic importance.8 The number of taxa reported in association with such disorders has substantially increased in recent times. As a consequence, there is an increasing need for simple, inexpensive, and accurate identification methods for these organisms.
