Method DNA hybrisization, electrophoresis
Comments DNA from Escherichia coli strains in a reference collection of 72 recent natural isolates (ECOR strains) and 25 natural isolates from the "pre-antibiotic" period 1930-1940 (Murray strains) were studied to determine the genomic abundance of insertion element IS5 and the size of genomic restriction fragments carrying sequences homologous to IS5.
