Abstract

In this issue of EBioMedicine, Kohl and colleagues describe the development of a new core genome MLST scheme (cgMLST) for Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex strains based on a set of 2891 genes. Here, the application of the scheme to a number of tuberculosis surveillance studies is examined.
