A computational pipeline for MLST typing from metagenomic data
MetaMLST is a software tool that performs an in-silico Multi Locus Sequence Typing (MLST) Analysis on metagenomic samples. MetaMLST achieves cultivation- and assembly- free strain level tracking and detects all the species to which the standard MLST protocol is applicable.
What can I use MetaMLST for?
- Strain level identification
- Microbial population analysis
How it works?
MetaMLST works by reconstructing the MLST loci-sequences using the closest reference from the publicly available datsets (PubMLST) and traces the most abundant strain of each species:
