Findings from use of an open-reading frame-specific Campylobacter jejuni DNA microarray to investigate genetic diversity among clinical isolates associated with 5 independent clusters of infection were compared with data from random amplified polymeric DNA (RAPD) and Penner serotyping analyses. The DNA microarray provides a highly specific epidemiological typing tool for analysis of C. jejuni isolates and reveals both divergent and highly conserved gene classes among isolates.
