An ISO-certified genomics workflow for identification and surveillance of antimicrobial resistance

  05 January 2023

Realising the promise of genomics to revolutionise identification and surveillance of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) has been a long-standing challenge in clinical and public health microbiology. Here, we report the creation and validation of abritAMR, an ISO-certified bioinformatics platform for genomics-based bacterial AMR gene detection. The abritAMR platform utilises NCBI’s AMRFinderPlus, as well as additional features that classify AMR determinants into antibiotic classes and provide customised reports.
