Moraxella bovis can cause infectious bovine keratoconjunctivitis (IBK).
The role of M bovoculi in IBK is not fully understood.
M bovis and M bovoculi appear to undergo genetic recombination with each other or other members of the Moraxellaceae.
Recombination complicates their classification and potential role(s) in IBK pathogenesis.
MALDI-TOF MS is used to identify M bovis, 2 major strains or genotypes of M bovoculi, M ovis, and other members of the Moraxellaceae.
Classification and determination of pathogenesis potential within Moraxella species may be better understood through whole genome sequencing.
