Klebsiella pneumoniae

In PLOS this week: sub-telomeric sequence diversity in dozens of human populations, variant linked to ataxia in dog breed, and more. 

Researchers sequenced more than 1,700 Klebsiella pneumoniae isolates from European hospitals to better understand the spread of drug-resistant strains.

Researchers retraced transmission events and resistance contributors with whole-genome sequences for 100 carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae isolates from a Beijing hospital.

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.

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.
