Plasmid classification in an era of whole-genome sequencing: application in studies of antibiotic resistance epidemiology

Abstract:

Plasmids are extra-chromosomal genetic elements ubiquitous in bacteria, and commonly transmissible between host cells. Their genomes include variable repertoires of ‘accessory genes’, such as antibiotic resistance genes, as well as ‘backbone’ loci which are largely conserved within plasmid families, and often involved in key plasmid-specific functions (e.g. replication, stable inheritance, mobility). Classifying plasmids into different types according to their phylogenetic relatedness provide...
