Overall task: To develop an analytical workflow for the use of single isolate and metagenomic NGS in human and veterinary clinical microbiology.

1. To develop general workflows for integration of NGS in clinical laboratory diagnostics.

2. To develop a framework for prediction of phenotypic antimicrobial susceptibility based on the presence or absence of genes and mutations in sequence data.

3. To develop tools for identification of hospital clusters and nosocomial transmission.
