  1. Divergent genes were assessed by microarray for 15 H. pylori isolates, three isolates from each of biopsy 15 and 16 from the mother and of biopsy 13, 125 and 24a from the three children. Isolates from the same biopsy were similar and the results are presented as the mean number of divergent genes by biopsy, averaged over comparisons between individual isolates.
