The application of genomics to tracing bacterial pathogen transmission.

Abstract

New sequencing technologies have made it possible to generate bacterial genomes at clinically relevant timescales and price levels. The use of whole-genome sequencing (WGS) has proved useful for investigating transmission at different scales. WGS data are highly effective at determining whether individuals are part of the same transmission chain, making it… (More)
