Five more wgMLST schemes available

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.

These extra schemas will make whole genome sequence typing even easier for BioNumerics users, cementing its reputation as the ultimate microbial data analysis software.

The results

All whole-genome multi-locus sequence typing schemas have been evaluated and thoroughly tested by our biologists and collaborators. Great care has been taken to create an analysis procedure that minimizes sample artifacts, while maintaining an enormous discriminatory power that supersedes the core genome schema or other current typing standards.
