First Belgian Report of Ertapenem Resistance in an ST11 Klebsiella Pneumoniae Strain Isolated from a Dog Carrying blaSCO-1 and blaDHA-1 Combined with Permeability Defects

(MLST) and the identification and localization of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and virulence-associated genes. Three plasmids were reconstructed from the whole-genome sequence (WGS) data: the conjugative ...

Genomic epidemiology of persistently circulating MDR Shigella sonnei strains associated with men who have sex with men (MSM) in Belgium (2013–19)

globally. The aim of this study was to describe the epidemiology of MDR S. sonnei in Belgium and to identify origins and circulating clusters through WGS. METHODS: We undertook demographic, temporal and ...

Listeria monocytogenes isolates from Cornu aspersum snails: Whole genome-based characterization and host-pathogen interactions in a snail infection model.

still scarce. Here, we use whole-genome sequencing (WGS) to assess the genomic diversity of hypervirulent, virulent and non-virulent phenotypes of 15 L. monocytogenes isolated from snails to unveil their ...

Strategy and Performance Evaluation of Low-Frequency Variant Calling for SARS-CoV-2 Using Targeted Deep Illumina Sequencing

quasispecies in diagnostic samples. The performance of detection and quantification of low-frequency variants using whole genome sequencing (WGS) of SARS-CoV-2 remains largely unknown. Here, we evaluated the ...

WGS- versus ORF5-Based Typing of PRRSV: A Belgian Case Study.

database is available. In this study, we performed whole-genome sequencing (WGS) on a collection of 124 PRRSV-1 positive serum samples that were collected over a 5-year period (2015-2019) in Belgium. Our ...

Retrospective evaluation of routine whole genome sequencing of Mycobacterium tuberculosis at the Belgian National Reference Center, 2019.

(NRC) has switched from conventional typing to prospective whole-genome sequencing (WGS) of all submitted complex (MTB) isolates. The ISO17025 validated procedure starts with semi-automated extraction and ...

Large diversity of linezolid-resistant isolates discovered in food-producing animals through linezolid selective monitoring in Belgium in 2019.

were assessed through WGS. RESULTS: The LR rate differed widely between animal host species, with the highest rates occurring in nasal samples from pigs and sows (25.7% and 20.5%, respectively) and ...

Coverage of the national surveillance system for human Salmonella infections, Belgium, 2016-2020.

trends over time, to estimate the true burden of salmonellosis in Belgium, and to evaluate the appropriateness of implementing whole-genome sequencing (WGS) at this central level. METHODS: The coverage of ...
