Automated MLST annotation
Today we added automated Multi-Locus Sequence Typing (MLST) to One Codex. MLST is a powerful epidemiological tool that is based on curated collections of conserved mutations in core marker genes. This common reference standard is used to differentiate closely-related isolates of the same species, with many common species having hundreds or thousands of defined MLST profiles. Datasets that are identified as being isolates or single-genome assemblies will be automatically analyzed and tagged with the detected ST label.
