True microbiota involved in chronic lung infection of cystic fibrosis patients found by culturing and 16S rRNA gene analysis
Research output: Contribution to journal › Journal article › peer-review
Patients suffering from cystic fibrosis (CF) develop chronic lung infection. In this study, we investigated the microorganisms present in transplanted CF lungs (n = 5) by standard culturing and 16S rRNA gene analysis. A correspondence between culturing and the molecular methods was observed. In conclusion, standard culturing seems reliable for the identification of the dominating pathogens.
