Draft genome sequence of a multidrug-resistant New Zealand isolate of Mycobacterium tuberculosis lineage 3 Academic Article uri icon


  • Multidrug resistance constitutes a threat worldwide to the management of tuberculosis (TB). We report the draft whole-genome sequence of a lineage 3 (East-African Indian) isolate of Mycobacterium tuberculosis which presented as multidrug resistant in New Zealand, and describe a number of single-nucleotide polymorphisms in genes relating to drug resistance.
