Abstract

Typing of bacterial strains in epidemiological studies by using plant lectins has been found to be a powerful method [4] for differentiating strains of related species [1] and epidemiological studies of various infections (Table 1). Excellent reviews of lectin typing of bacteria have been published by Pistole [6] and Doyle and Keller.
