White Paper: Outbreak analysis of Shigella sonnei using 1928 SNP analysis

UPGMA tree showing the result of the cgMLST analysis performed on the Shigella sonnei outbreak in the 1928 platform.

1928 Diagnostics offers a platform for analysis of NGS sequenced bacterial genome data for resistance predictions and outbreak surveillance in a clinical routine setting.

For outbreak analysis, two different methods can be used: cgMLST and SNP analysis.

For cgMLST, 1928 Diagnostics support a wide range of bacteria through predefined and manually curated schemas. In this white paper, we are looking at data from a previously published study and re-create the phylogeny presented in the article, by performing SNP analysis.
