    • Genome sequencing defines phylogeny and spread of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcusaureus in a high transmission setting 

      Tong, Steven Y. C.; Holden, Matthew T. G.; Nickerson, Emma K.; Cooper, Ben S.; Köser, Claudio U.; Cori, Anne; Jombart, Thibaut et al. (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, 2014-12-19)
      Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a major cause of nosocomial infection. Whole-genome sequencing of MRSA has been used to define phylogeny and transmission in well-resourced healthcare settings, yet the ...

      Sim, Bernice Meng Qi; Chantratita, Narisara; Ooi, Wen Fong; Nandi, Tannistha; Tewhey, Ryan; Wuthiekanun, Vanaporn; Thaipadungpanit, Janjira et al. (2010-08-27)
      Abstract Background Burkholderia thailandensis is a non-pathogenic environmental saprophyte closely related to Burkholderia pseudomallei, the causative agent of the often fatal animal and human disease melioidosis. To study ...
    • Molecular detection and speciation of pathogenic Leptospira spp. in blood from patients with culture-negative leptospirosis
