Revised guidelines for Australian laboratories performing mycobacteriology testing.

Ivan Bastian, Lisa Shephard, Richard Lumb, ,

Mycobacteriology laboratories play a key role in tuberculosis (TB) control by providing phenotypic and molecular diagnostics, by performing molecular typing to aid contact tracing, and by supporting research and similar laboratories in Australia's neighbouring countries where TB is prevalent. The National Tuberculosis Advisory Committee (NTAC) published a set of laboratory ... Read more >>

Danielle J Ingle, Anders Gonçalves da Silva, Mary Valcanis, Susan A Ballard, Torsten Seemann, Amy V Jennison, Ivan Bastian, Rolf Wise, Martyn D Kirk, Benjamin P Howden, Deborah A Williamson,

Shiga-toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) infection is an important global cause of foodborne disease. To date however, genomics-based studies of STEC have been predominately focused upon STEC collected in the Northern Hemisphere. Here, we demonstrate the population structure of 485 STEC isolates in Australia, and show that several clonal groups (CGs) ... Read more >>
