Genomic variant-identification methods may alter Mycobacterium tuberculosis transmission inferences.

Abstract

genomic variation have variable performance, particularly when predicting potential transmission links from pairwise genetic distances. Phylogenetic reconstruction may be improved by less stringent variant filtering. Approaches that improve variant identification in repetitive, hypervariable regions, such as long-read assemblies, may improve transmission inference.
