A computational pipeline for MLST typing from metagenomic data
MetaMLST performs an in-silico Multi Locus Sequence Typing (MLST) Analysis on metagenomic samples, directly from raw reads. MetaMLST achieves cultivation- and assembly- free strain level tracking and profiles all the species to which the standard MLST protocol is applicable.
Current database version: [ May 2022 ]
