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.

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.
