Antibiotic and plasmid family detection

Antibiotic resistance was detected using Abricate with three databases: card and resfinder were used to search for plasmids that contained certain antibiotic resistance genes, plasmidfinder to to characterize plasmid families and vfdb to annotate virulence genes in each plasmid.

This approach provide the user with a fully comprehensive characterization of virulence and antibiotic resistance genes in the plasmids present in the NCBI database, as well as a quick way to visualize a certain family of interest.
