Spfy: analyzing E.coli genomes as graph data

Kevin K Le


Whole genome sequencing isn't only for humans, but also plays a key role in our understanding of bacteria. Spfy uses WGS data to predict traditional lab results for E.coli genomes. The results are then stored in a linked graph for identifying and comparing different subtypes. The entire platform is packaged as a web-app, and the analysis modules are written in Python (+ a bit of R). Part of a larger open-source initiative by the National Microbiology Lab of Canada.
