NIH scientists sequenced the genome of the first blaNDM-1-positive strain of Klebsiella pneumoniae detected in the institute’s hospital. They found three plasmids, one of which included the blaNDM-1 gene conferring resistance to carbapenems. Sequencing was performed with PacBio, and size selection was done with BluePippin for building long-read libraries.
