mapquik: Efficient low-divergence mapping of long reads in minimizer space | bioRxiv (www.biorxiv.org)

On the human genome, mapquik achieves a 30× speed-up over the state-of-the-art tool minimap2, and on the maize genome, a 350× speed-up over minimap2, making mapquik the fastest mapper to date.

An ISO-certified genomics workflow for identification and surveillance of antimicrobial resistance | Nature Communications (www.nature.com)

Here, we report the creation and validation of abritAMR, an ISO-certified bioinformatics platform for genomics-based bacterial AMR gene detection.

We validate abritAMR by comparing with PCR or reference genomes, representing 1500 different bacteria and 415 resistance alleles. In these analyses, abritAMR displays 99.9% accuracy, 97.9% sensitivity and 100% specificity. We also compared genomic predictions of phenotype for 864 Salmonella spp. against agar dilution results, showing 98.9% accuracy.
