Infections caused by drug-resistant bacteria are being reported at an increasing rate. Antibiotic resistance is, now, recognized as one of the major threats to global public health.
Whole-genome sequencing has become an important method for understanding antimicrobial resistance determinants and for surveillance of the emergence and spread of resistant bacteria and the underlying genetic mechanisms of resistance.
This white paper from Qiagen demonstrates how mediators of antimicrobial resistance can be determined from the genomes of pathogen isolates, and how their allocation on either the chromosome or plasmid can be resolved using tools of the CLC Microbial Genomics Module for CLC Genomics Workbench software.
