Heavy Metal Susceptibility of Escherichia coli Isolated from Urine Samples from Sweden, Germany, and Spain

Antimicrob Agents Chemother
PMCID: 5923176
PMID: 29530862
DOI: 10.1128/AAC.00209-18

[…] d using FastQC software (v0.11.4; according to the developers' recommendations. Species identification was performed using the rMLST tool available at This tool searches for exact matches to sequences defined in the rMLST allele library, which are derived from more than 7,000 bacterial species. Allelic matches are cross-referenced […]


A Natural Mouse Model for Neisseria Colonization

Infect Immun
PMCID: 5913851
PMID: 29440372
DOI: 10.1128/IAI.00839-17

[…] Tblastn searches were conducted using TBLASTN 2.7.1+ (, ). Protein query sequences from N. meningitidis and N. gonorrhoeae were used to search N. musculi strain AP2031's genome sequence (PubMLST identifier [ID], 29520 []). Many N. meningitidis queries used for the analysis were retrieved from the Protegen protective antigen database (). The accession numbers for the commensal human-dw […]


Draft Genome Sequence of a Highly Resistant Streptococcus pneumoniae Serotype 15A Strain Isolated from Blood

Genome Announc

[…] in SS40_16 isolated in 2016 from a blood sample from a 19-month-old female from a government hospital in Malaysia. The strain belongs to serotype 15A and sequence type 1591 (ST1591) (as determined by PubMLST []). SS40_16 is a multidrug-resistant strain with resistance to penicillin (MIC, ≥2 µg/ml), tetracycline, and trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole.The genome was sequenced using a […]
