Summary of "Large scale automated phylogenomic analysis of bacterial isolates and the Evergreen Online platform."

Public health authorities whole-genome sequence thousands of isolates each month for microbial diagnostics and surveillance of pathogenic bacteria. The computational methods have not kept up with the deluge of data and the need for real-time results. We have therefore created a bioinformatics pipeline for rapid subtyping and continuous phylogenomic analysis of bacterial samples, suited for large-scale surveillance. The data is divided into sets by mapping to reference genomes, then consensus sequences are generated. Nucleotide based genetic distance is calculated between the sequences in each set, and isolates are clustered together at 10 single-nucleotide polymorphisms. Phylogenetic trees are inferred from the non-redundant sequences and the clustered isolates are added back. The method is accurate at grouping outbreak strains together, while discriminating them from non-outbreak strains. The pipeline is applied in Evergreen Online, which processes publicly available sequencing data from foodborne bacterial pathogens on a daily basis, updating phylogenetic trees as needed.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Comprehensive, methodical analysis of complex biological systems by monitoring responses to perturbations of biological processes. Large scale, computerized collection and analysis of the data are used to develop and test models of biological systems.

A chemistry-based technology in which sets of reactions, for solution or solid-phase synthesis, are used to create molecular libraries for analysis of compounds on a large scale.

A method of differentiating individuals based on the analysis of qualitative or quantitative biological traits or patterns. This process which has applications in forensics and identity theft prevention includes DNA profiles or DNA fingerprints, hand fingerprints, automated facial recognition, iris scan, hand geometry, retinal scan, vascular patterns, automated voice pattern recognition, and ultrasound of fingers.

A statistical technique that isolates and assesses the contributions of categorical independent variables to variation in the mean of a continuous dependent variable.

Techniques of nucleotide sequence analysis that increase the range, complexity, sensitivity, and accuracy of results by greatly increasing the scale of operations and thus the number of nucleotides, and the number of copies of each nucleotide sequenced. The sequencing may be done by analysis of the synthesis or ligation products, hybridization to preexisting sequences, etc.
