Detection of Fluoroquinolone Resistance Single-Nucleotide Polymorphisms in Neisseria gonorrhoeae gyrA and parC Using MALDI-TOF Mass Spectrometry


Many known mechanisms of drug resistance in microorganisms have genetic markers, which are specific genomic changes, mostly single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs). A search for new methods of detecting SNPs is necessary for more efficient identification of resistant strains. A new method was proposed for SNP detection on the basis of minisequencing and/or… (More)
