Summary of "MIRUReader - Fast in-silico MIRU-VNTR typing directly from long sequencing reads."

Mycobacterial interspersed repetitive unit-variable number tandem repeat (MIRU-VNTR) typing is widely used to genotype Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTBC) in epidemiological studies for tracking tuberculosis transmission. Recent long-read sequencing technologies from Pacific Biosciences (PacBio) and Oxford Nanopore Technologies (ONT) can produce reads that are long enough to cover the entire repeat regions in each MIRU-VNTR locus which was previously not possible using the short reads from Illumina high-throughput sequencing technologies. We thus developed MIRUReader for fast in-silico MIRU-VNTR typing directly from long sequence reads.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Procedures for identifying types and strains of bacteria. The most frequently employed typing systems are BACTERIOPHAGE TYPING and SEROTYPING as well as bacteriocin typing and biotyping.

A technique of bacterial typing which differentiates between bacteria or strains of bacteria by their susceptibility to one or more bacteriophages.

Direct nucleotide sequencing of gene fragments from multiple housekeeping genes for the purpose of phylogenetic analysis, organism identification, and typing of species, strain, serovar, or other distinguishable phylogenetic level.

Skeletal muscle fibers characterized by their expression of the Type II MYOSIN HEAVY CHAIN isoforms which have high ATPase activity and effect several other functional properties - shortening velocity, power output, rate of tension redevelopment. Several fast types have been identified.

Cell-surface proteins that bind glutamate and trigger changes which influence the behavior of cells. Glutamate receptors include ionotropic receptors (AMPA, kainate, and N-methyl-D-aspartate receptors), which directly control ion channels, and metabotropic receptors which act through second messenger systems. Glutamate receptors are the most common mediators of fast excitatory synaptic transmission in the central nervous system. They have also been implicated in the mechanisms of memory and of many diseases.
