Understanding Chip-seq data (ENCODE and other resources)

Understanding Chip-seq data (ENCODE and other resources) 0 Hello, I am a beginner in understanding Chip-seq data analysis and just got introduced to Chip-seq data by studying the ENCODE portal documentation (www.encodeproject.org/data-standards/terms/#concordance). I am focusing on Chip-seq for transcription factors. Although, I still have some question such as: Why each…

Extensively drug resistant E. coli LZ00114

Introduction Escherichia coli is a common Gram-negative opportunistic pathogen that causes invasive host infections through virulence factors such as flagella, toxin secretion, and adhesins. According to the source of the infection, pathogenic E. coli can be classified as intestinal (diarrheagenic) and extraintestinal (ExPEC). Uropathogenic E. coli (UPEC) is the most…

LAMP-CRISPR-Cas12a-lateral flow immunochromatographic strip | IDR

Introduction About 700,000 people die from “superbugs” globally every year. Antibiotic abuse is the culprit of extensive spread of superbugs. Currently, carbapenemase-producing organisms are among the most important pathogens of hospital infections. Especially the plasmid-mediated highly transmissible carbapenem-resistant Enterobacterales (CRE) has become an important public health issue of global concern….

Genomic features of a carbapenem-resistant K. oxytoca strain

Introduction Antimicrobial resistance is a global issue associated with an increased and often unrestricted antibiotic use in clinical settings, which leads to the dissemination of carbapenem-resistant Enterobacterales (CRE) in healthcare facilities (World Health Organization, 2017).1 CRE constitutes a large group of bacteria with different mechanisms for drug resistance. Among them,…

P. aeruginosa isolated from patients with aural infections

Introduction Aural infections are one of the most common diseases of the head and neck and are predominantly caused by bacterial infections of the ear canal. Several studies from different countries have reported that Pseudomonas aeruginosa is the most common pathogen isolated from ear canal secretions, followed by Staphylococcus aureus.1…

Emergence of the Coexistence of mcr-1, blaNDM-5, and blaCTX-M-55 in Kl

Introduction Klebsiella pneumoniae (K. pneumoniae) is an opportunistic pathogen and the leading cause of healthcare-associated infections.1 Multidrug-resistant (MDR) K. pneumoniae isolates are rapidly spreading, thus limiting the choice of antimicrobial agents for empiric treatment of infections caused by these microorganisms; hence, this is a public health challenge.2 Polymyxins are last-resort…

Plasmid-Encoded VIM-2-pProducing Pseudomonas stutzeri | IDR

Introduction Pseudomonas stutzeri is an aerobic, nonfermenting, active, Gram-negative oxidase-positive bacterium with unique colony morphology.1,2 Burri and Stutzer first described it in 1985,3 and the specific metabolic properties, such as denitrification, degradation of aromatic compounds, and nitrogen fixation, distinguish it from other pseudomonads species.2,4 Historically, P. stutzeri was not commonly…
