In this study, 62 Mycobacterium tuberculosis strains were characterized by fast ligation-mediated PCR (FLiP) and, previously performed, IS6110 restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP). FLiP proved a reproducible and specific method for differentiation between M. tuberculosis strains. Discriminatory power of FLiP was close to that of the reference IS6110 RFLP suggesting its usefulness in studying genetic diversity of M. tuberculosis strains.
