TitleBeijing sublineages of Mycobacterium tuberculosis differ in pathogenicity in the guinea pig
Study TypePopulation Genomics
Abstract The Beijing family of Mycobacterium tuberculosis strains is part of lineage 2 (also known as the East Asian lineage). In clinical studies, we have observed that isolates from the sublineage RD207 of lineage 2 were more readily transmitted among humans. To investigate the basis for this difference, w .. [more]
