Genomics of Corynebacterium striatum, an emerging multidrug-resistant pathogen of immunocompromised patients

January 2018

K. Nudel, X. Zhao, S. Basu, X. Dong, et al.

Scientists from Harvard Medical School and other institutions used whole genome sequencing and MALDI/TOF to analyze seven C. striatum infections, all resistant to multiple drugs. They found that three of the pathogens were related, and that complex resistance profiles could be spread by a single recombination event. BluePippin was used for size-selecting libraries prior to PacBio sequencing.
