The identification of Candida albicans strains by restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis of DNA

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Digestion of total DNA from Candida albicans isolates with the restriction enzyme HinfI generated simple, readily interpretable band patterns on ethidium bromide-stained gels. The procedure, which was highly reproducible, was used to detect restriction fragment length polymorphisms in 47 isolates of this species.
