Assistant Research Professor Marcos Perez-Losada was published in Genetics and Evolution of Infectious Diseases in April 2017. 


He co-authored the article, "Multilocus sequence typing of pathogens: Methods, analyses, and applications." The article examines MLST, which was built on the well-established population genetic concepts and methods of the multilocus enzyme electrophoresis (MLEE) technique, but provides significant advantages over this and other typing approaches. MLST has become a standard and flexible approach for characterizing bacteria and some eukaryotes mainly due to the existence of comprehensive databases and its broad implementation in clinical laboratory settings, from basic research laboratories to core sequencing facilities.
