Genetic diversity of drug and multidrug resistant Mycobacterium tuberculosis circulating in Veracruz, Mexico

2018
PLoS One
PMCID: 5854261
PMID: 29543819
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0193626

[…] genotypes were expressed as numerical codes representing the number of miru-vntr for each locus. lineages were individually identified using the similarity search module [] of the database miru-vntrplus (http://www.miru-vntrplus.org/miru/index.faces)[]., the tree polar arrangement was realized by the figtree program (tree figure drawing tool version 1.4.3.

Molecular Characterization of Mycobacterium avium subsp. hominissuis of Two Groups of Lymph Nodes, Being Intradermal Tuberculin or Interferon Gamma Test Positive and Negative, Isolated from Swiss Cattle at Slaughter

2018
PMCID: 5844927
PMID: 29556502
DOI: 10.3389/fvets.2018.00032

[…] the discriminatory power of a genotyping method, was determined according to the formula described by hunter and gaston ()., genetic strain lineages were predicted using online tools available from miru-vntrplus website (). a dendrogram based on 20 vntr loci was generated using the unweighted pair group method using arithmetic averages (upgma) algorithm., variable number of tandem repeat data […]

Genetic Diversity of Drug resistant Mycobacterium tuberculosis Isolates in Isfahan Province of Iran

2018
PMCID: 5840967
PMID: 29531921
DOI: 10.4103/2277-9175.225594

[…] copy numbers were obtained by comparing the band sizes with an allele naming table for each tandem repeat locus made available in microsoft excel format on the miru-vntr plus website (http://www.miru-vntrplus.org). the h37rv was used as control for allele assignation., the final result of 24-locus miru-vntr typing (miru-vntr data) is a numerical code, corresponding to the repeat number […]

A complex scenario of tuberculosis transmission is revealed through genetic and epidemiological surveys in Porto

2018
BMC Infect Dis
PMCID: 5785791
PMID: 29370774
DOI: 10.1186/s12879-018-2968-1

[…]  ).fig. 1, we determined the main geographical lineages for the m. tuberculosis isolates by comparing the genotyped samples and the miru-vntr reference strains whose lineage is well determined in the miru-vntrplus website http://www.miru-vntrplus.org., isolates that share common genetic ancestry are referred to as genotypically clustered, a potential marker for episodes of direct tb transmission.

Genetic diversity and potential routes of transmission of Mycobacterium bovis in Mozambique

2018
PLoS Negl Trop Dis
PMCID: 5772998
PMID: 29346413
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pntd.0006147

[…] in order to evaluate relatedness of the spoligotype and vntr patterns of the different samples we generated a dendogram using the upgma algorithm using the tool provided on the site http://www.miru-vntrplus.org/. the spoligotype patterns of the respective isolates were entered into the mbovis.org database. in this database each unique spoligotype pattern is named by 'sb' followed by a four […]
