Evaluation of Phenotypic and Genotypic Approaches as Predictors of Salmonella Strains of Clinical and Non-clinical Origin

This study will investigate the possible phenotypic and genotypic similarities and differences between Salmonella isolates obtained from swine with clinical salmonellosis to isolates obtained from swine showing no clinical disease. Phenotypic analysis will be done by antimicrobial resistance profiling, and amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) fingerprinting was employed for genotypic analysis.  A total of 281 (140 clinical and 141 non-clinical) are included in this study.
