Abstract

Genetic diversity among Borrelia burgdorferi isolates recovered from the skin of
Lyme disease patients was assessed by ribosomal DNA (rDNA) spacer restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis, genomic restriction site polymorphism analysis, and plasmid content analysis. There was a significant association between the three rDNA spacer types, the six pulsed-field gel types, and plasmid content (P < 0.001). The association between distinct chromosomal and plasmid markers implies a clonal origin for each genotype.
