Title: Nucleotide sequences specific to Yersinia pestis and methods for the detection of Yersinia pestis

Abstract

Nucleotide sequences specific to Yersinia pestis that serve as markers or signatures for identification of this bacterium were identified. In addition, forward and reverse primers and hybridization probes derived from these nucleotide sequences that are used in nucleotide detection methods to detect the presence of the bacterium are disclosed.
