Public dataset highlights: Antibiotic resistance

Friday, June 16, 2017

This is a big one and has been getting a lot more attention ever since the UN met last September to wring their hands over it. This week's Data is Plural features a publicly available dataset on antibiotic resistance genes:
Antibiotic resistance. ResistoMap is an interactive visualization of antibiotic drug resistance, based on more than 1,500 bacteria genome samples from people’s intestinal tracts. The data behind the visualization is available to download. It’s partly based on two prior datasets: McMaster University’s Comprehensive Antibiotic Resistance Database (“a bioinformatic database of resistance genes, their products and associated phenotypes”) and the University of Gothenburg’s BacMet (“an easy-to-use bioinformatics resource of antibacterial biocide- and metal-resistance genes”).
