Abstract

Fingerprinting techniques are essential tools in the investigation of transmissible diseases. Unless one is able to track a pathogenic organism from its reservoir, through its vectors and carriers into infected hosts, it is impossible to define an organism’s epidemiology. In the absence of such understanding public health and other measures directed toward the eradication of the infection are unlikely to succeed.
