[…] st131 isolates that represented the three reported st131 clades. a1_036_gull was identified as clade b and a1_001_gull was identified as clade a, based on a separate core genome analysis using parsnp (supplementary fig. ).table 1†nt = new sequence type., †nt = new sequence type., amr gene detection using srst2 identified a total of 27 different amr genes, three of which (amph, ampc2, mrda […]

[…] esbl genes, and all the esbl-ec isolates were analyzed to retrieve the esbl genotypes for further analysis. draft genome sequences were aligned and then applied for phylogenetic tree construction by parsnp in the harvest package, and the phylogenetic tree was visualized with figtree as previously described. sixty esbl-ec strains were randomly selected to conduct the pfge analysis using […]

[…] 2 enterobacter, glycogen synthesis cluster; (villa et al., )) were analyzed accordingly. the number of snps in the core genome between isolates of the same st was calculated using harvest suite 1.0 (parsnp) and mega 6.0 (http://www.megasoftware.net/)., this whole genome shotgun project has been deposited at ddbj/ena/genbank under the bioproject number prjna421654 (pjmh00000000 [imt38402], […]

[…] a maximum likelihood phylogenetic tree based on the core genome of e. faecium e745 and an additional 72 e. faecium strains representing the global diversity of the species [], was generated using parsnp [] with settings -c (forcing inclusion of all genome sequences) and -x (enabling recombination detection and filtering). the resulting phylogenetic tree was visualized using mega 7.0.26 [].

[…] were assembled using velvet 1.2.7. prokka v 1.10 was used for the annotation of plasmid genes; plasmidfinder (https://cge.cbs.dtu.dk/services/plasmidfinder/) was used to detect plasmid inc groups; parsnp (https://github.com/marbl/parsnp) was used to align the core genome. the resistance genes were identified by performing blastn against the resfinder 2.1 database […]
