Qiagen Microbial Insights AR

Qiagen has launched Microbial Insights AR (QMI-AR), an integrated genomic database that provides curated, single-point entry access to four of the world's largest knowledgebases on antimicrobial resistance. Specifically, it integrates the Comprehensive Antibiotic Resistance Database (CARD), ResFinder, a National Institutes of Health AMRFinder database of resistance genes, as well as the ARG-ANNOT database of peptide markers. According to Qiagen, the database complements ARESdb, a comprehensive, regularly updated genomic knowledgebase on clinically relevant antibiotic resistance strains that the firm has made available to the global research community through a partnership with Ares-Genetics, a Curetis subsidiary. Qiagen said that it will offer QMI-AR through the CLC Microbial Genomics Module, an extension to the CLC Genomics Workbench bioinformatics software.
