We are pleased to announce five new wgMLST schemas for Clostridium difficile, Cronobacter spp., Enterococcus raffinosus, Klebsiella oxytoca, and Neisseria gonorrhoeae, respectively. This brings the total of available wgMLST schemas to fourteen.

Brucella spp. whole genome sequence typing

A genus-wide whole genome multi-locus sequence typing (wgMLST) schema for typing Brucella spp. in BioNumerics is now available! When used in combination with our cloud-based Calculation Engine, typing Brucella spp. isolates up to strain level using whole genome sequencing data is now easily accessible to everyone.

Version 1.01 of the E. coli genotyping plugin available

The E. coli functional genotyping plugin predicts phenotypic traits such as serotype, antibiotics resistance and virulence based on E. coli whole genome sequences. Version 1.01 of this online plugin contains a number of improvements compared to the initial release version.

BioNumerics version 7.6.2 released

We are pleased to announce the latest update of our BioNumerics software: version 7.6.2. As you have gotten used to with previous updates, this version once more has a series of exciting new features and improvements.

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.

New schemas are available for Salmonella enterica, Escherichia coli / Shigella, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Campylobacter coli - C. jejuni, Legionella pneumophila, and Klebsiella pneumoniae.

BioNumerics version 7.6.1 released

Invitation to 2nd Conference on Rapid Microbial NGS and Bioinformatics

The consortium of the EU-funded project PathoNGenTrace and the Robert Koch Institute is delighted to invite you to the 2nd Rapid Microbial NGS and Bioinformatics: Translation Into Practice conference which will take place in Hamburg, Germany from June 9 to 11, 2016.

BioNumerics version 7.6 released

Applied Maths NV is proud to announce the release of version 7.6 of its flagship software suite BioNumerics. Beyond any doubt, the main novelty of BioNumerics version 7.6 is the implementation of a user-friendly whole genome SNP (wgSNP) pipeline. This analysis suite allows you to detect Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) on whole genome sequences and perform cluster analyses on the resulting wgSNP matrix.
