Ordering the mob: Insights into replicon and MOB typing schemes from analysis of a curated dataset of publicly available plasmids


Plasmid typing can provide insights into the epidemiology and transmission of plasmid-mediated antibiotic resistance. The principal plasmid typing schemes are replicon typing and MOB typing, which utilize variation in replication loci and relaxase proteins respectively. Previous studies investigating the proportion of plasmids assigned a type by these… (More)
