The article offers information on the use of DNA fingerprinting for the investigations of the spread of brucellosis in Northern Ireland. The DNA fingerprint result can help determines links to outbreaks of the disease in other herds when combined with information on cattle movements. According to Minister for Agriculture Michelle Gildernew, the technique allows veterinarians to explore in detail the contacts between herds.
