Paulina Sikora-Liszka, Adam Finn, Leon Danon &
These data are results of a cross sectional study of nasopharyngeal bacterial colonisation of a group of healthy pre-school children from Coimbra, Portugal who had nasal swabs taken at nursery school in March 2011. The swabs were analysed by real time quantitative PCR for S. pneumoniae using primers specific to the pneumococcal gene (LytA) for autolysin. In addition samples in which S. pneumoniae was detected underwent microarray analysis for different capsular gene loci, permitting detection...
