Klebsiella pneumoniae

Signature Science will assess the validity of metagenomic and metatranscriptomic analyses to detect the transmission of viable pathogens in healthcare settings.

The Klebsiella pneumoniae isolate was among one of the first such highly resistant strains reported to the CDC, which sequenced and analyzed it.

Investigators used sequencing, phylogenetics, and epidemiology to retrace transmission during a 2008 outbreak of carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae.

An uncommon clonal group, clone type 307, was the most common among the nearly 2,000 Klebsiella pneumonia samples sequenced.

Scientists are using sequencing to identify resistance genes and piece together the evolution of a pathogen's genome.

This Week in PNAS

In PNAS this week: sequencing analysis of Klebsiella pneumoniae, sex-biased gene expression in jewel wasps, and more.

In a study published in PNAS, the researchers found that the bacteria has split into three distinct species and is developing multiple clones that are highly virulent or drug resistant.

Freeze-drying and rehydrating pooled samples may overcome problems casued by dilution of pathogen nucleic acids.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – A study published today in Science Translational Medicine shows how whole-genome sequencing in real time during an outbreak can help change hospital management to control the outbreak.

Researchers at the National Institutes of Health have used whole-genome sequencing to track an outbreak of drug resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae in real time, demonstrating that sequencing during an outbreak can lead to changes in patient management to stem the outbreak.
