Abstract The current migratory movements demmand to define new strategies to rapidly track the transmission of high-risk Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) imported strains. Whole genome sequencing allows us to identify strain-specific SNPs for any strain to design strain- specific PCRs to track them. However, .. [more]
