Mycobacterial interspersed repetitive-unit-variable-number tandem-repeat analysis and Beijing/W family of Mycobacterium tuberculosis.


Hanekom et al. (1) highlighted that host-pathogen compatibility determines the Beijing strain population structure in different host populations. Hanekom’s study was based on 321 Mycobacterium tuberculosis strains, classified as Beijing/W by spoligotyping (3). These strains were genotyped by 12-locus mycobacterial interspersed repetitive-unit (MIRU… (More)
