Software tools for clustering, reconstruction and typing of plasmids from draft assemblies
Plasmids are mobile genetic elements (MGEs), which allow for rapid evolution and adaption of bacteria to new niches through horizontal transmission of novel traits to different genetic backgrounds. The MOB-suite is designed to be a modular set of tools for the typing and reconstruction of plasmid sequences from WGS assemblies.
