We are grateful to Dr. Harlan Caldwell and Dr. Grant McClarty for supply of chromosomal DNA for strain B/TZ1A828/OT. This strain was originally isolated by Dr. West from a child with trachoma in Tanzania in 1998. We are grateful for Dr. West and Dr. Hsieh for helpful discussions about the origin of this isolate [38]. We thank the core sequencing and informatics teams at the Sanger Institute for their assistance. This work was supported by The Wellcome Trust and the MRC Sexual Health and HIV Research Strategy Committee G0601640 to INC and PM. All views expressed are those of the authors and not necessarily those of the MRC or Health Departments.
