The aim of this study was to better understand the molecular epidemiology of Campylobacter coli isolated from multiple sources in Belgium, by studying the genotypic diversity and antimicrobial resistance phenotypes and resistance mechanisms of 59 C. coli isolates. Isolates from broiler carcasses and human cases were genotyped using multilocus sequence typing (MLST), porA typing, flagellin gene A restriction fragment length polymorphism (flaA-RFLP) typing, and by PCR binary typing (P-BIT). Thirty-two MLST sequence types, 24 flaA types, 31 porA alleles, and 29 P-BIT types were identified…
