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 global M. tuberculosis molecular epidemiology. To evaluate the use of MIRU typing in discriminating drug-resistant M. tuberculosis strains of the Beijing genotype family, 102 multidrug-resistant (MDR) clinical isolates and 253 randomly selected non-MDR isolates collected from 2000 to 2003 in Hong… CONTINUE READING
