Development and Evaluation of a Core Genome Multilocus Sequencing Typing (cgMLST) Scheme for Serratia marcescens Molecular Surveillance and Outbreak Investigations

Serratia marcescens can cause a range of severe infections and contributes to nosocomial outbreaks. Although whole-genome sequencing (WGS)-based typing is the standard method for molecular surveillance and outbreak investigation, there is no standardized analytic scheme for S. marcescens core genome multilocus sequence typing (cgMLST). Here, the development and evaluation of…

A core genome MLST (cgMLST) scheme for Mycobacterium abscessus complex subspecies

Dataset for manuscript “The use of comparative genomic analysis for the development of subspecies-specific PCR assays for the Mycobacterium abscessus complex” by Winifred Akwani et al. A core genome MLST scheme was developed for Mycobacterium abscessus complex (MABC) subspecies M. abscessus, M. bolletii and M. massiliense, using chewBBACA version 2.8.5…

Genomic Characterization of Clinical Listeria monocytogenes Isolates in Beijing, China

Listeria monocytogenes is a foodborne human pathogen that affects public health worldwide. Whole-genome sequencing (WGS) can classify L. monocytogenes isolates and identify virulence islands and resistance genes potentially influencing infectivity. Herein, WGS was used to assess 151 L. monocytogenes isolates from 120 cases of clinical infection in Beijing, China, between…
