Epidemiological links between tuberculosis cases identified twice as efficiently by whole genome sequencing than conventional molecular typing: A population based study

PLoS One
PMCID: 5884559
PMID: 29617456
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0195413

[…] number of (transmission) events within a VNTR cluster was calculated by the number of patients within the respective VNTR cluster minus the index patient (n-1 method). Fastq.gz files were uploaded to PhyResSe [] to assign a lineage to each isolate. The Chi-square test was used to analyse differences between patients clustered by WGS and patients that were not; Fisher’s exact test was used for cell […]


Molecular epidemiology of tuberculosis in Tasmania and genomic characterisation of its first known multi drug resistant case

PLoS One
PMCID: 5821347
PMID: 29466411
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0192351

[…] ean genome coverage of 20, and were annotated as previously described []. Mycobacterial lineage was predicted with TB Profiler [] and mutations associated with drug resistance were detected using the PhyResSE database [] followed by manual checking of the sequence. A maximum likelihood phylogenetic inference tree was built in PhyML using the generalised time reversible (GTR) substitution model []. […]


Isoniazid resistance levels of Mycobacterium tuberculosis can largely be predicted by high confidence resistance conferring mutations

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5818527
PMID: 29459669
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-21378-x

[…] ins, four other WHO-TDR strains had whole genome sequences available yet were excluded, three due to heteroresistance as they were found to have a mutation in katG in 21%, 29% and 43% of reads (using PhyResSE, see below) and one because a mixture of resistant as well as susceptible bacilli for multiple drugs was suggestive of mixed infection. Isoniazid MIC determination on Löwenstein-Jensen (LJ) m […]


A Predominant Variable Number Tandem Repeat Cluster of Mycobacterium tuberculosis Isolates among Asylum Seekers in the Netherlands and Denmark, Deciphered by Whole Genome Sequencing

J Clin Microbiol
PMCID: 5786717
PMID: 29167288
DOI: 10.1128/JCM.01100-17

[…] n cluster 1064-32 and isolates belonging to other VNTR clusters. The phenotypic resistance profile of the MDR-TB patients was verified on the basis of detected mutations in resistance genes using the PhyResSe pipeline. Phenotypic drug susceptibility testing (DST) was performed with a MGIT 960 system. […]


Draft Genome Sequence of the First Confirmed Isolate of Multidrug Resistant Mycobacterium tuberculosis in Tasmania

Genome Announc
PMCID: 5668546
PMID: 29097470
DOI: 10.1128/genomeA.01230-17

[…] SNVs and 97 were insertions/deletions. The genome of TASMDR1 displayed high-confidence single-nucleotide polymorphisms in genes correlating with antimicrobial drug resistance when analyzed using the PhyResSE database (). These include high-confidence mutations in the katG gene (aGc/aCc, S315T) and rpoB gene (gAc/gGc, D435G; tCg/tTg, S450L), which underlie M. tuberculosis resistance to isoniazid a […]


Half of rifampicin resistant Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex isolated from tuberculosis patients in Sub Saharan Africa have concomitant resistance to pyrazinamide

[…] age depth of at least >30x. was considered acceptable. The reads obtained were then aligned to M. tuberculosis H37Rv reference genome, and total variant calling was performed with the pipeline of the PhyResSE web-tool. Isolates showing a coverage of at least 20× were considered for SNP analysis.Interpretation of PZA resistance based on pncA mutations was based on published literature () [,,,–]. Si […]
