The process of whole genome sequencing (WGS) has benefited from recent advances collectively known as next generation sequencing, allowing high throughput sequencing of bacterial genomes at low financial cost. This results in WGS becoming a viable alternative to some traditional typing methods for public health infectious disease surveillance.
