Mycobacterium tuberculosis is an obligate human pathogen capable of persisting in individual hosts for decades. We sequenced the genomes of 21 strains representative of the global diversity and six major lineages of the M. tuberculosis complex (MTBC) at 40- to 90-fold coverage using Illumina next-generation DNA sequencing. We constructed a genome-wide(More)
Mycobacterium tuberculosis is an obligate human pathogen capable of persisting in individual hosts for decades. To determine whether antigenic variation and immune escape contribute to the success of M. tuberculosis, we determined and analyzed 22 genome sequences representative of the global diversity of the M. tuberculosis complex (MTBC). As expected, we(More)
