Tools for Hunting Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) Genes

Contributed by Cory Schlesener, B.S. Predicting bacterial isolate susceptibility for disease treatment and surveying resistance prevalence broadly is of great interest, especially as antibiotic resistance is increasing globally among clinical isolates. Screening sequence data for genes and alleles that confer antibiotic resistance has increased in availability but also in complexity over the past decade. There is now a myriad of bioinformatics tools […]
