Simplified dendrograms illustrating the genetic relationship between human and bovine group B streptococcus. A) Dendrogram of Quebec sample derived by randomly amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) analysis; adapted from (7). All RAPD groups contain bovine serotype III GBS, but those marked by an asterisk also contain human isolates (see Table 2). B) Dendrogram of human restriction digest pattern types (RDP) of serotype III GBS derived by analysis of RDP of genomic DNA created by digestion with restr
