Description

Spoligotyping is designed to address TB epidemiology and diagnosis by clustering samples into strain-types using differential fingerprinting patterns. Whilst advances in sequencing technologies are leading to whole genome bacterial characterisation, spoligotyping is still a technology of choice in the field. To bridge the gap, we have developed SpolPred, software to predict the spoligotype from raw sequence reads.
