The predominant strains from India belong to Central-Asian (CAS) and the East-African-Indian (EAI) clade of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. The two clades have also been shown to be geographically partitioned. The study of such strains may help to understand the characteristics that make M. tuberculosis an effective pathogen and its overrepresentation in certain populations.
