Please join us for the last journal club of 2013 on Monday 9th December at 12pm, where we will be discussing a paper that deals with the use of next generation sequencing and the identification of resistance sites in the Mtb genome. Mince pies will be included….
Presenter: Dimitrios Evangelopoulos
Chair: Prof Timothy D McHugh
Paper: “Genomic analysis identifies targets of convergent positive selection in drug-resistant Mycobacterium tuberculosis” Nat Genet. 2013 Oct;45(10):1183-9. doi: 10.1038/ng.2747
The paper will be backed up by two more from the same journal:
Nat Genet. 2013 Oct;45(10):1255-60. doi: 10.1038/ng.2735 “Genome sequencing of 161 Mycobacterium tuberculosis isolates from China identifies genes and intergenic regions associated with drug resistance” and
Nat Genet. 2013 Oct;45(10):1190-7. doi: 10.1038/ng.2743. “Evolution of high-level ethambutol-resistant tuberculosis through interacting mutations in decaprenylphosphoryl-β-D-arabinose biosynthetic and utilization pathway genes”
In addition, Dimitrios will also mention data from our own paper which is in press on the application of next generation sequencing in Mtb.
