Abstract

Increasing antimicrobial resistance and limited alternative treatments have led to fluoroquinolone-resistant <i>Shigella</i> strain inclusion on the WHO global priority pathogens list. In this study we characterized multiple <i>Shigella</i> isolates from Malawi with whole genome sequence analysis, identifying the acquirable fluoroquinolone resistance determinant <i>qnrS1</i>.
