Rapid Nanopore Whole-Genome Sequencing for Anthrax Emergency Preparedness

Researchers completed Bacillus anthracis nanopore whole-genome sequencing from a human anthrax isolate hours after receipt. The de novo assembled genome showed no evidence of known antimicrobial resistance genes or introduced plasmid(s). Same-day genomic characterization enhances public health emergency response.
