Phage-type specific markers identified by Diversity Arrays Technology (DArT) analysis of Salmonella enterica ssp. enterica serovars Enteritidis and Typhimurium

Diversity Arrays Technology (DArT) was applied to differentiate between S. enterica serovar Enteritidis and Typhimurium strains, respectively. Ten and eleven, mainly phage and plasmid–related markers were identified for serovars Enteritidis and Typhimurium. In combination, these markers can be used for subtyping among and within phage types
