Towards a global genomic epidemiology of meningococcal disease

Abstract:

Whole-genome sequencing (WGS) is invaluable for studying the epidemiology of meningococcal disease. Here we provide a perspective on the use of WGS for meningococcal molecular surveillance and outbreak investigation, where it helps to characterize pathogens, predict pathogen traits, identify emerging pathogens, and investigate pathogen transmission during outbreaks. Standardization of WGS workflows has facilitated their implementation by clinical and public health laboratories (PHLs), but fur...
