Abstract

Over the past decade, has emerged as an urgent threat to public health. Initially reported from cases of ear infections in Japan and Korea, has since been detected around the world. While whole-genome sequencing has been extensively used to trace the genetic relationships of the global emergence and local outbreaks, a recent report in describes a targeted genotyping method as a rapid and inexpensive method for classifying isolates (T. de Groot, Y. Puts, I. Berrio, A. Chowdhary, and J. F. Meis, mBio 11:e02971-19, https://doi.org/10.1128/mBio.02971-19, 2020).
