Virulence Characteristics and Genetic Affinities of Multiple Drug Resistant

Posted by drsushilsahu on 31 Mar 2011 at 06:08 GMT

it is very unique study on Virulence Characteristics and Genetic Affinities of Multiple Drug Resistant urogenital pathogenic E.coli.... as per my knowledge no one work on this topic in india till now.. it is give a new dimension in the field of urogenital E.coli. it will make change in treatment of it. wide geographical and intercontinental variation strengthen it. i gives thanks to auther for this valuable and unique work.
