Six more wgMLST schemes available

We are pleased to announce six new wgMLST schemas on top of the already existing ones for Staphylococcus aureus and Listeria monocytogenes, which was also updated to contain the recently published core genome as a separate typing scheme.

These schemas will make whole genome sequence typing even easier for BioNumerics users, cementing its reputation as the ultimate microbial data analysis software.

The results

All whole-genome multi-locus sequence typing schemas have been evaluated and tested by our biologists and collaborators and some are already being used in routine outbreak surveillance. Great care has been taken to create an analysis procedure that minimizes sample artifacts, while maintaining an enormous discriminatory power that supersedes the core genome schema or other current typing standards.
