Abstract

Although we live in the age of genomics and the availability of complete genome sequences of Coxiella burnetii has increased our understanding of the genomic diversity of the agent, it is still somewhat a "query" microorganism. The epidemiology of Q fever is complex due to the worldwide distribution, reservoir and vector diversity, and a lack of studies defining the dynamic interaction between these factors. In addition Coxiella is an agent that could be used as a bioterror weapon. Therefore, typing methods that can discriminate strains and be used to trace back infections to their source are of paramount importance. In this chapter we provide an overview of historical and current typing methods and describe their advantages and limitations. Recently developed techniques such as MLVA and SNP typing have shown promise and improved the discrimination capacity and utility of genotyping methods for molecular epidemiologic studies of this challenging pathogen.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 21 July 2012.
All research outputs
#13,856,164
of 17,367,552 outputs
Outputs from Advances in experimental medicine and biology
#2,284
of 3,926 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#98,439
of 133,419 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Advances in experimental medicine and biology
#17
of 21 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 17,367,552 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 11th percentile – i.e., 11% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 3,926 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 5.3. This one is in the 25th percentile – i.e., 25% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 133,419 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 12th percentile – i.e., 12% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 21 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
