Abstract Campylobacter jejuni has been recognized as the most common bacterial cause of gastroenteritis worldwide, in both developed and developing countries, since the late 1970s. A number of genotyping schemes have been developed to identify the sources and route of transmission of these foodborne pathogens so that proper control measures can be developed. In this review, we provide current genotypic schemes developed for Campylobacter spp. (particularly C. jejuni) over the last decades, along with an evaluation of the strength and weakness of these techniques and their applications.
