Will you be visiting ECCMID this April? If so, you might find our poster presentation interesting:
Whole genome sequencing for outbreak analysis and pathogen typing
Introduction: Whole genome sequencing via next generation sequencing (NGS) is becoming a standard for the surveillance and and epidemiological investigation of outbreaks1. We introduce a best practices workflow for outbreak analysis streamlining NGS-based Multilocus Sequence Typing (MLST), antimicrobi- al resistance typing, and taxonomic identification of patho- gen isolates.
We further demonstrate that whole genome SNP trees offer unparalleled resolution for source tracking or for the analysis of transmission.
Learn more about the findings and conclusions at ECCMID. We hope to meet you – we’ll be at booth 11a.
