Full-text available
Mycobacterium tuberculosis is known to cause pulmonary and extrapulmonary tuberculosis. In Morocco, the spread of multidrug-resistant (MDR) tuberculosis (TB) has become a major challenge. Here, we announce the draft genome sequences of two Mycobacterium tuberculosis strains, MTB1 and MTB2, isolated from patients with pulmonary tuberculosis in Moroc...

In late December 2019, an emerging viral infection COVID-19 was identified in Wuhan, China, and became a global pandemic. Characterization of the genetic variants of SARS-CoV-2 is crucial in following and evaluating it spread across countries. In this study, we collected and analyzed 3,067 SARS-CoV-2 genomes isolated from 55 countries during the fi...
Article
Full-text available
The COVID-19 pandemic has been ongoing since its onset in late November 2019 in Wuhan, China. Understanding and monitoring the genetic evolution of the virus, its geographical characteristics, and its stability are particularly important for controlling the spread of the disease and especially for the development of a universal vaccine covering all...
Article
Full-text available
Here, we report the draft genome sequences of six severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) strains. SARS-CoV-2 is responsible for the COVID-19 pandemic, which started at the end of 2019 in Wuhan, China. The isolates were obtained from nasopharyngeal swabs from Moroccan patients with COVID-19. Mutation analysis revealed the prese...

Here, we report the draft genome sequence of Stenotrophomonas maltophilia MDMC339, a strain able to survive in the difficult conditions imposed by the Merzouga desert. The analyzed genome contains 4,788,525 bp with 4,262 genes coding for proteins, including several genes related to stress.
Article
Full-text available
In Morocco two waves of SARS-CoV-2 infections have been recorded. The first one occurred from March 02, 2020 with infections mostly imported from Europe and the second one dominated by local infections. At the time of writing, the genetic diversity of Moroccan isolates of SARS-CoV-2 has not yet been reported. The present study aimed to analyze firs...

ARTICLE INFO ABSTRACT Introduction: Urinary tract infection (UTI) constitute the first reason for consultation and medical prescription and the leading cause of infection in community medicine justifying antibiotic treatment. To our best knowledge this first Moroccan study which aims to evaluate the frequency of isolation and antimicrobial suscepti...

Tuberculosis is a contagious disease that usually attacks the lungs but sometimes attacks other parts of the body, such as the kidneys, glands, and bones. It is an endemic and major public health problem in Morocco. Tuberculosis is transmitted through the airways via the inhalation of microdroplets containing Mycobacterium tuberculosis . We present...

Background/aim: Type 2 diabetes is a heterogeneous and multifactorial metabolic disorder with some relationship to oxidative stress (OS). Since no studies were conducted in the Moroccan population, this clinical investigation aimed at evaluating the antioxidants status in Moroccan patients with type 2 diabetes. Materials and methods: Blood sampl...
Article
Full-text available
This report describes the whole-genome shotgun sequences of two multidrug-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii strains, ABE8_07 and ABE12_M, isolated from a Moroccan hospital floor. These two genome sequences will initiate the study and characterization of the Acinetobacter baumannii genome in Morocco. A cinetobacter baumannii is a Gram-negative cocco...

Here, we describe the annotated genome sequence of Mycobacterium tuberculosis MTB13_M. The organism was isolated from a sputum sample in Mo-rocco. T uberculosis (TB) is an endemic and major public health problem in Morocco (1). TB is an airborne bacterial infection caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis and can be acquired by breathing contaminated a...

The arid and semi-arid represent one third of the earth's surface. In these areas, soil salinity and irrigation water is one of the limiting factors for plant productivity and crop yields. These ecosystems are characterized by a high variability of rainfall combined with high evaporation favoring the accumulation of salts in the soil. This affects...

Microbial whole-genome sequencing is an important tool for mapping genomes of novel organisms, finishing genomes of known organisms, or comparing genomes across multiple samples. Sequencing the entire microbial genome is important for generating accurate reference genomes, for microbial identification, and other comparative genomic studies.
