Mycobacterial interspersed repetitive unit (MIRU) typing has been found to allow rapid, reliable, high-throughput genotyping of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, and may represent a feasible approach to study M. tuberculosis molecular epidemiology. To evaluate the use of MIRU typing in discriminating M. tuberculosis strains, isolates from 105 patients in Wuhan City, China, were genotyped by this method as compared to spoligotyping. MIRU typing identified 55 types that defined 21 clusters and 34… CONTINUE READING
