|Title:||Development of a nested PCR for environmental detection of the pathogenic free-living amoeba Balamuthia mandrillaris.|
|Citation:||J EUKARYOT MICROBIOL, 2011, 58 (3), pp. 269-271|
|Abstract:||A DNA extraction and nested PCR method for detecting the pathogenic amoeba Balamuthia mandrillaris from the environment was developed. Sixteen of 17 Californian soil samples were positive compared with 0/44 from the United Kingdom. This approach will enable a greater understanding of B. mandrillaris ecology, geographic distribution, and public health risk.|
