Example of results obtained using the Type Among Multiple Species workflow

The following example includes typing of 2 samples: 1 Salmonella enterica (acc no. ERR277212), and 1 Yersinia ruckeri (acc no SRR3152422). Using the workflow Type Among Multiple Species workflow, analysis results are automatically summarized in the Result Metadata Table as shown in figure 10.22. The analysis results in this example include resistance found for antibiotic inactivation enzyme, name of the best matching reference, applied MLST scheme, detected sequence type and typing status. You could also choose (using options in the Table Setting window) to display additional information such as the 'Best Match, Species' and 'Find Resistance With Nucleotide DB' for example.

Analyzing samples in batch will produce a large amount of output files, making it necessary to filter for the information you are looking for. Through the Result Metadata Table, it is possible to filter among sample metadata and analysis results. By clicking Find Associated Data (Image find_in_project_16_h_p) and optionally performing additional filtering, it is possible to perform additional analyses on a selected subset directly from this Table, such as:

Note that the tool will output, among other files, variant tracks. It is possible to export multiple variant track files from monoploid data into a single VCF file with the Multi-VCF exporter.This exporter becomes available when installing the CLC Microbial Genomics Module. All variant track files must have the same reference genome for the Multi-VCF export to work.
