Draft Genome Sequence of an Isolate of Extensively Drug-Resistant Mycobacterium tuberculosis from Nepal Academic Article uri icon


  • Extensively drug-resistant (XDR) Mycobacterium tuberculosis has become a challenge to the treatment of tuberculosis (TB) in several countries, including Nepal. Here, we report for the first time the draft genome sequence of an isolate of XDR-TB collected in Nepal and describe single-nucleotide variations associated with its extensively drug-resistant phenotype.
