Molecular differentiation of Mycobacterium tuberculosis strains without IS6110 insertions.

Academic Article


  • By using standard restriction fragment length polymorphism, 6 zero-copy IS6110 Mycobacterium tuberculosis isolates were identified from 1180 Maryland isolates as part of the National Tuberculosis Genotyping and Surveillance Network Project. By using various genotyping methods, we demonstrated that this zero band cluster can be differentiated into six genotypes.
