New publication: CRyPTIC Data Compendium

The large and comprehensive dataset of clinical tuberculosis isolates collected by the CRyPTIC project is described in detail by this paper, just published in PLoS Biology.

Each isolate was whole genome sequenced and had its minimum inhibitory concentration to 13 different antibiotics measured using a bespoke 96-well broth microdilution plate.

Alice Brankin, along with Kerri Malone from Zam Iqbal’s group at the EBI, led this work.
