Genomic evidence supporting the clonal expansion of extensively drug resistant tuberculosis bacteria belonging to a rare Proto – Beijing genotype

Tuberculosis illness (TB), brought on by Mycobacterium tuberculosis, is a serious public well being concern in Thailand. The excessive prevalence of recent Beijing (Lineage 2.2.1) strains has been related to multi- and extensively-drug resistant infections (MDR-, XDR-TB), complicating illness management. The affect of rarer proto-Beijing (L2.1) strains is much less clear. In our research of thirty-seven […]
