This paper presents the first evaluation of the molecular epidemiology of Mycobacterium tuberculosis in Peru. We characterised 323 isolates using spoligotyping and mycobacterial interspersed repetitive units variable number tandem repeats (MIRU-VNTR) typing. We aimed to determine the levels of genetic diversity and genetic differentiation among and within Peruvian isolates and the epidemiological factors which may be driving patterns of population structure and evolution of M. tuberculosis in… CONTINUE READING
