Abstract

Recognized species of rapidly growing mycobacteria have increased significantly in number over the past decade. Traditional biochemical methods of identification and differentiation have been replaced by molecular methods including sequence- and PCR-based methods. Recently, mass spectrometric methods have also been successfully utilized for discrimination to the species level. This chapter describes the current state-of-the-art for the identification of rapidly growing mycobacteria using molecular methods.
