Population genetics

Whole genome sequencing of ocular Chlamydia trachomatis in Amhara region, Ethiopia, an area with persistent hyperendemic trachoma.

This study will address the characteristics of the ocular chlamydia trachomatis population structures within Amhara, a setting which has experienced repeated rounds of antibiotic for trachoma, and whether those circulating populations are different than known sequenced strains.
