Abstract: Whole-genome sequence (WGS) data can, in principle, resolve bacterial isolates that differ by a single base pair, thus providing the highest level of discriminatory power for epidemiologic subtyping. Nonetheless, because the capability to perform whole-genome sequencing in the context of epidemiological investigations involving priority pathogens has only recently become practical, fewer isolates have WGS data available relative to traditional subtyping methods. It will be important to link these WGS data to data in traditional typing databases such as PulseNet and PubMLST in order to place them into proper historical and epidemiological context, thus enhancing investigative capabilities in response to public health events. We present MIST (Microbial In Silico Typer), a bioinformatics tool for rapidly generating in silico typing data (e.g. MLST, MLVA) from draft bacterial genome assemblies. MIST is highly customizable, allowing the analysis of existing typing methods along with novel typing schemes. Rapid in silico typing provides a link between historical typing data and WGS data, while also providing a framework for the assessment of molecular typing methods based on WGS analysis. (More)
