The Type With MLST Scheme tool outputs a report, summarizing the typing, and a MLST Typing Result element.
The report will contain overall information about the typing results and whether the typing was conclusive or not.
The typing information contains the following information:
- Average kmer fraction: for all alleles in a given sequence type, we calculate how many of the allele's kmers were detected. This number is the average fraction of the number of kmers detected in all these alleles.
- Alleles identified: how many alleles in the sequence type were identified, that is, all kmers in the allele were found in the sample.
- Alleles called: how many alleles in the sequence type had at least one kmer found in the sample.
- Allele count: the total number of alleles in the sequence type.
The sample information and scheme information contains various statistics about the input and scheme.
