journal contributionposted on 2023-05-18, 05:05 authored by Roycroft, E, Mac Aogain, M, O'Toole, RF, Fitzgibbon, M, Rogers, T
Extensive drug resistance is an emerging threat to the control of tuberculosis (TB) worldwide, even in countries with low TB incidence. We report the draft whole-genome sequence of the first reported extensively drug-resistant TB (XDR-TB) strain isolated in Ireland (a low-incidence setting) and describe a number of single-nucleotide variations that correlate with its XDR phenotype.
