Capsular typing method for Streptococcus agalactiae using whole genome sequence data

Abstract:

Group B streptococcus (GBS) capsular serotype is a major determ inant of virulence, and affects potential vaccine coverage. Here we report a whole genome sequencing-based method for GBS serotype assignment. This shows high agree ment (kappa=0.92) with conventional methods, and increased serotype assignment (100%) to all ten capsular types.
