The PhD-project SalMolType aims to develop an alternative, molecular method for the subtyping of a pathogen. Subtyping of pathogens is essential for surveillance and timely confinement of an outbreak, since it enables us to identify a link between a human isolate and the source of an infection. Molecular techniques allow, in comparison to traditional microbiological subtyping methods, a more convenient standardisation, higher accuracy, they are faster and, in general, more objective.
