Genomic comparison of bacterial isolates

Using high-resolution short read whole genome sequencing of isolates, we provide within species comparison to understand relatedness of specific strains.  We will provide a report with strain relatedness to help put the nosocomial transmission in context to understand and hopefully eliminate transmission pathways.

  • Phylogenetic tree: Analysis of all sequenced isolates to determine relatedness to each other. The clusters identified will inform outbreak mitigation strategies and to acknowledge non-related imports.

  • Longitudinal analysis of transmission: Analysis of transmission patterns over time.

  • Additional: Supplementary analysis can be done to further characterize isolates, including:

    • Resistance gene profile

    • Virulence factors

    • Plasmid profiles
