ABSTRACT
The article offers information on a research related to the development of TaqMan®-based polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assay technique for the diagnosis of contagious bovine pleuropneumonia (CBPP) caused by Mycoplasma mycoides subsp.mycoides SC (MmmSC). It is mentioned that the assay was used to detect 49MmmSC strains from different temporal and geographical locations. It is concluded that PCR assay is an efficient tool for CBPP diagnosis.
