Abstract

The spread of multidrug-resistant (MDR) tuberculosis (TB) has become amajor global challenge. In 2016, Tasmania recorded its first known incidence ofMDR-TB. Here, we report the draft whole-genome sequence of the Mycobacteriumtuberculosis isolate from this case, TASMDR1, and describe single-nucleotide polymorphismsassociated with its drug resistance.
