Available for bacterial isolates only. We use Illumina technology and aim for 30-50x coverage depth of the bacterial genome. Analysis includes de novo assembly, multi-locus sequence typing (MLST), antibiotic resistance gene screening, virulence gene screening, pangenome comparison, SNPs and pangenome based dendrograms. Specific analysis such as serotyping can be performed based on needs.
