The newly proposed variable-number tandem-repeat (VNTR) typing system, which includes a basic 15-locus set and a high-resolution 24-locus set (P. Supply et al., J. Clin. Microbiol. 44:4498-4510, 2006), demonstrated a high power for the discrimination of Mycobacterium tuberculosis isolates collected worldwide. To evaluate its ability to differentiate the Beijing genotype strains from the Beijing area in China, 72 isolates with typical Beijing or Beijing-like spacer oligonucleotide typing… CONTINUE READING
