Zoonotic Leprosy in the Southeastern United States
|Sample no.||Average coverage (% genome covered)*||No. variants partially shared†||No. variants only in 3I-2-v15‡||No. 3I-2 variants absent in 3I-2-v15‡||No. variants in both strains||No. TN strain variants in both strains|
*Average no. of consensus sequence reads obtained from the particular specimen covering the entire genome.
†No. variants reported to be specific for single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) type 3I-2 that are present in all samples of the 3I-2-v1 genotype and that were found in some, but not all, samples of the 3I-2-v15 genotype.
‡Resequencing referenced the M. leprae TN standard genomic sequence, identified 13 variants present only in 3I-2-v1 (2 SNP, 2 insertion/deletions) or 3I-2-v15 (9 SNP), and differentiated the strains.
