We report an implemented molecular-typing-method based on HRMA to detect SNPs within MLST loci, characterizing 100 clinical MRSA and 11 control strains, representative of Italian clones. The results provide solid evidence that HRMT could be a fast, cost-effective and reliable alternative to MLST, for MRSA molecular epidemiology.

Abstract

We report an implemented molecular-typing-method based on HRMA to detect SNPs within MLST loci, characterizing 100 clinical MRSA and 11 control strains, representative of Italian clones. The results provide solid evidence that HRMT could be a fast, cost-effective and reliable alternative to MLST, for MRSA molecular epidemiology.
