E. coli functional genotyping: predicting phenotypic traits from whole genome sequences

This video shows how to install and use the E. coli functional genotyping plugin in a BioNumerics database. This plugin contains public databases for serotype, virulence and resistance prediction, as well as plasmid and prophage detection. An in silico PCR tool is also implemented, making it possible to detect Shiga toxin gene subtypes and virulence genes, mimicking the wet lab PCR.


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