Resistance typing

Identification of antimicrobial resistance genes is important for understanding the underlying mechanisms and the epidemiology of antimicrobial resistance. The Find Resistance tool may be used for resistance typing of pre-assembled, complete or partial genomes simple contig sequences assembled using the de novo assembly algorithm of CLC Genomics Workbench (see Alternatively, use the Type a Known Species or Type among Multiple Species template workflows as described in the chapter Workflow templates.

The Find Resistance tool is inspired by [Zankari et al., 2012] and uses BLAST for identification of acquired antimicrobial resistance genes within whole-genome sequencing (WGS) data.
