Characterization of a Bacteriophage GEC_vB_Bfr_UZM3 Active against.

represent a strictly lytic phage belonging to a siphovirus morphotype. It is characterized by high stability at body temperature and in pH environments for about 6 h. Whole genome sequencing analysis of the ...

Homologous versus heterologous prime-boost COVID-19 vaccination: impact on clinical severity of Omicron among hospitalized COVID-19 patients in Belgium

confirmed by whole genome sequencing and vaccinated with a homologous (mRNA for prime/mRNA for boost) or heterologous (viral vector for prime/mRNA for boost) prime-boost vaccination schedule were included in ...

Targeted Chromosomal Barcoding Establishes Direct Genotype-Phenotype Associations for Antibiotic Resistance in Mycobacterium abscessus.

anticipate a future when a plethora of antibiotic-resistant strains will be isolated and sequenced. However, in the era of whole-genome sequencing, one of the challenges is to unequivocally assign a biological ...

Homologous and Heterologous Prime-Boost Vaccination: Impact on Clinical Severity of SARS-CoV-2 Omicron Infection among Hospitalized COVID-19 Patients in Belgium

of BA.1, BA.2, BA.4 or BA.5 Omicron infection (confirmed by whole genome sequencing) among hospitalized COVID-19 patients using observational data from national COVID-19 registries. In addition, it was ...

Development of strain-level shotgun metagenomics approaches to detect and characterize microbiological contaminants in the context of food safety

It was proven that whole genome sequencing has a higher resolution than any combination of tests carried out so far. But the isolation is not always possible, and it is time-consuming. A new method ...

ESCAIDE 2022 Oral presentation: International outbreak of Salmonella Typhimurium linked to a chocolate factory in 2022: Belgian findings

were analysed for Salmonella spp. using real-time PCR. Whole genome sequence (WGS) analysis of isolates of probable cases and positive food samples is still ongoing. Results We identified 62 probable ...

Novel prediction models for genotoxicity based on biomarker genes in human HepaRGTM cells

(NAM s) to identify molecular events underlying the genotoxic mode of action of chemicals. Previously, we developed the GENOMARK biomarker, consisting of 84 genes selected based on whole genomics DNA ...

Introduction of WGS in food microbiology: advantages and challenges

Keywords: antimicrobial resistance (AMR) Food Safety foodborne outbreak investigation Monitoring SciCom Whole genome sequencing (WGS) Abstract: In October 2021 the Scientific Committee of the Federal Agency ...

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 ...
