CONVENTIONAL AND MOLECULAR CHARACTERIZATION OF Pasteurella multocida ISOLATED FROM A CASE OF SWINE SEPTICAEMIC PASTEUERLLOSIS. Indian Journal of Animal Research. 48(6): 605-608. doi: 10.5958/0976-0555.2014.00040.5.
The paper reports morphological, biochemical characterization, and molecular characterization using HS-PCR, PM-PCR and Capsular PCR analysis of Pasteurella multocida strain isolated from a case of swine pasteurellosis to obtain a clear picture of this strain for its exploitation as a vaccine candidate.
