Reference O'Sullivan DM, McHugh TD, Gillespie SH. Mapping the fitness of Mycobacterium tuberculosis strains: a complex picture. J Med Microbiol. 2010 Aug 19. Table 1.PubMed ID20724506
Method Using generation time as an indicator of fitness, researchers used an automated liquid culture system, the MB/BacT ALERT 3D, to investigate the fitness of 19 clinical isolates of M. tuberculosis from 14 patients at the Royal Free Hospital with different resistance phenotypes (Table 1).
Comments Erdman strain, a drug sensitive strain. Note-range of 792-932min on Synthetic medium is given in link
