Title: Resolution threshold of current molecular epidemiology of diphtheria

Abstract: Molecular epidemiology of diphtheria would definitely benefit from implementation of more precise molecular genetics. First, WGS (or at least core genome) analysis might offer a broader range of possible general solutions from global tracing of large clonal clusters (current threshold) toward fine-tuned strain discrimination. At the same time, a multicenter evaluation of recently developed inexpensive and discriminatory VNTR and CRISPR methods is warranted to see if and how they could complement regional surveillance.
