Allele Validation Tool (AVT)

AVT or Allele Validation Tool (AVT) for whole genome Multilocus Sequence Typing (wgMLST) schemas is a tool that is capable of validating novel alleles found in de novo assemblers by allele calling algorithms. The proper validation of an allele can be of extreme importance, specially in the correct detection of outbreak situations based on wgMLST.

This project was developed by me and Margarida Cândido (1) with the help and coordination of Mickael Silva(2), João André Carriço(2) and Francisco M. Couto(1).
