Frances Jamieson

Frances Jamieson’s research interests are focused on the molecular epidemiology and genomics, and determinants of resistance and virulence in  M. tuberculosis strains and non-tuberculosis mycobacteria (NTM).  Research initiatives have been undertaken using comparative genomics and strain characterization (e.g. LSPs and SNPs) to recognize and identify virulence factors associated with local, circulating strains of M. tuberculosis.
