Abstract

Shigella sonnei, an emerging global cause of shigellosis, consists of four distinct lineages and the current pandemic involves several geographically associated, multidrug- resistant clones that belong to lineage III (1-3). A typing scheme based on high resolution melting (HRM) of six chromosomal single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) has been described to identify all lineages/sub-lineages (4).
