The use of whole genome sequencing (WGS) for routine typing of bacterial isolates has increased substantially in recent years. For (MTB), in particular, WGS has the benefit of drastically reducing the time to generate results compared to most conventional phenotypic methods. Consequently, a multitude of solutions for analyzing WGS MTB data have been developed, but their successful integration in clinical and national reference laboratories is hindered by the requirement for their validation, for which a consensus framework is still largely absent. We developed a bioinformatics workflow for …
