Direct antimicrobial resistance prediction from clinical MALDI-TOF mass spectra using machine learning
Early use of effective antimicrobial treatments is critical for the outcome of infections and the prevention of treatment resistance. Antimicrobial resistance testing enables the selection of optimal antibiotic treatments, but current culture-based techniques can take up to 72 hours to generate results. We have developed a novel machine learning approach to predict antimicrobial resistance directly from matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization–time of flight (MALDI-TOF) mass spectra profiles of clinical isolates.
