Description

The authors investigated the transmission dynamics of TB cases among Inuit from one outbreak in Arctic Canada over the period 2011-12. They used a 'deep' sequencing method to identify the source of the transmission and concluded that within-host diversity should be incorporated into transmission analyses.
