Identifying mixed Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection and laboratory cross-contamination during mycobacterial sequencing programs

Abstract:

Introduction: Detecting laboratory cross-contamination and mixed tuberculosis infection are important goals of clinical Mycobacteriology laboratories. Objectives: To develop a method detecting mixtures of different M. tuberculosis lineages in laboratories performing Mycobacterial next generation sequencing (NGS). Setting: Public Health England National Mycobacteriology Laboratory Birmingham, which performs Illumina sequencing on DNA extracted from positive Mycobacterial Growth Indicator tubes...
