Introduction to NCBI Pathogen Detection and antimicrobial resistance data in Google BigQuery
This webinar concluded on March 29th, 2023. You can watch the recording here.
The NCBI Pathogen Detection project houses over 1.3 million genomes from microbial isolates. As part of our analysis pipeline we developed and use the AMRFinderPlus tool to identify over 17 million antimicrobial resistance genes and point mutations, and select virulence and stress resistance genes. To make this data easier to use, we have worked with Google Cloud Platform to provide access to metadata and sequences through BigQuery and Cloud Storage buckets. This webinar will introduce you to the Pathogen Detection pipeline and what data is available, show you the basics of accessing the data using Google BigQuery, and show you where to find more information and tutorials.
