: The Institutional Research Ethics Committee from the INS approved the study (Reference: OC-020-19). Additionally, the CRyPTIC associated study [CitationRef removed] (for which the objective was identification of the genomic determinants of MTB drug resistance by WGS) was reviewed and approved by the Research Ethics Committees of the INS, UPCH and LSHTM institutions. The study did not involve human samples so no informed consent was required. Instead, the study included MTB strains stored in the culture bank of the LRNM culture bank of the INS. The specific permission to use the preserved MTB strains was obtained from the National Centre for Public Health of the INS.
