The input from the user is assembled if needed, and the bacterial species is identified through the KmerFinder algorithm. When ready, the assembled contigs are submitted to the ContigAnalyzer and ResFinder for annotation of contig metrics and identification of resistance genes. If the bacterial species is identified, the contigs are further, if applicable, submitted to MLST, PlasmidFinder and VirulenceFinder to identify the sequence type, known plasmids (and, if applicable, their plasmid sequence type), and known virulence genes. When all services are done, the BAP produces a summary report of the services result (see Fig 2).
