recipe ncbi-amrfinderplus

AMRFinderPlus finds antimicrobial resistance and other genes in protein or nucleotide sequences.



Public Domain



This software and the accompanying database are designed to find acquired antimicrobial resistance genes in bacterial protein or nucleotide sequences as well as known point mutations for several taxa. With AMRFinderPlus we have added select members of additional classes of genes such as virulence factors, biocide, heat, acid, and metal resistance genes.
