Streptococcus pyogenes emm typing

This tutorial explains how to use the BioNumerics emm typing script, developed for BioNumerics users that want to type Streptococcus pyogenes based on the portion of the emm gene that dictates the M serotype. The script assigns the emm type and subtype to imported (and assembled) sequences, by querying the CDC M-type specific database (ftp://ftp.cdc.gov/pub/infectious_diseases/biotech/tsemm/).

Sequences

Nucleic acid or amino acid sequences, from import and assembly over multiple alignment to annotation, SNP analysis, primer design and comparison of complete chromosomes.
