The clinical importance of several Gram-positive genera from human and veterinary origin has been steadily increasing during the last decades. The taxonomy of these genera is still in full development and phenotypic identification has low discriminatory power. PCR-based DNA-fingerprinting techniques for species identification and strain typing will be developed to enable better identification and epidemiological studies of strains of these genera isolated from man and animals.
