Using CSI-type technology to unravel the source of bacteria

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Mayo Clinic laboratory workers have a new tool to perform high tech genetic sleuthing for the source of stubborn, sometimes life-threatening bacteria. Bacterial whole genome sequencing can trace individual isolates of bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus, also known as Staph aureus, to determine if an outbreak is occurring. This common bacterium that has plagued health […]
