Yes, it would help if you could be a little more specific and phrase your question in terms of an informatics problem 
( to paraphase the US TV show Jeopardy, LOL). This is a pretty large area and I could offer a couple of 
ideas depending on exactly what you are trying to do. I happen to be more familiar with things like 
resistance evolution in controlled conditions ( things like testing hepatitis drug candidates for evolution
of resistant strains ), this was the first google hit for example, 


 but there are a variety of organizations that deal with emerging pathogen reports
and follow up. For example, I'm on this mailing list, and there are probably many people here that the moderator
could put you in touch with,


certainly the US CDC comes to mind also,


If you are interested in stuff like this, there is a link to a group at mit at the bottom,


"These data can be accessed through the Broad Institute website, at http://www.broad.mit.edu/XDR_TB. "

If you had more details on what exactly your group is trying to do, that would help narrow down things a bit.
