[Article in Polish]


The article presents results of valuation for B. anthracis-specificity and usefulness for its identification obtained for different chromosomal markers. In the first part of the study markers SG-749, SG-300 and SG-450 were analyzed. For the investigation RFLP-PCR and MSSCP techniques were used and different electrophoresis methods were tested. The results gave an information not only about specificity of tested markers but also about the possibility of shorten time necessary to obtain results of B. anthracis identification.
