Table 2 S. pneumoniae clonal characterization by MinION

From: Rapid identification, capsular typing and molecular characterization of Streptococcus pneumoniae by using whole genome nanopore sequencing

Sequence type or clonal complex designation % of S. pneumoniae strains corresponding to each designation
ST 16% (5/32)
SLV 56% (18/32)
DLV 25% (8/32)
QLV 3% (1/32)
  1. To obtain the % of S. pneumoniae strains corresponding to each designation, MinION results were compared to those obtained by Sanger sequencing. A total of 32 invasive pneumococcal strains were analyzed. Wg-MLST results were achieved in 3 h
  2. Abbreviations: ST Sequence Type, SLV Single Locus Variantm, DLV, Double Locus Variant, QLV Quadruple Locus Variant
