<mgrebus at> asked for references describing the
use of REP-PCR. Here are some:

Repetitive Intergeneric Consensus) Sequences and the Polymerase Chain Reaction
to Fingerprint the Genomes of Rhizobium meliloti Isolates and Other Soil Bacteria.
Applied and Environmental Microbiology. 1992 Jul; 58(7): 2180-2187.

Judd, A. K. et al. Use of repetitive sequences and the polymerase chain reaction technique
to classify genetically related bradyrhizobium japonicum serocluster 123 strains.

Using DNA Fingerprints Generated by Repetitive Sequence-Based Primers in the Polymerase
Chain Reaction. Journal of Clinical Microbiology. 1992 Nov; 30(11): 2921-2929.

Woods, C. R. et al. Whole-cell repetitive element sequence-based polymerase chain reaction
allows rapid assessment of clonal relationships of bacterial isolates. Journal of
Clinical Microbiology. 1993 Jul; 31(7): 1927-1931.

I hope this information is useful,
