Hi all,

     I'm working on a procedure to enumerate a species of bacteria in soil 
using PCR, and I was wondering if anyone had any experience/advice that 
they would be willing to share?
     Specifically, I'm working with Listeria monocytogenes and primers for 
the listeriolysn gene.  I was hoping to use the procedure in studies of a 
possible viable but nonculturable state in the organism.
