Step by step one goes very far
Project context and summary :
Because of the fast-growing number of assembled genomes available in the public repositories (GenBank/RefSeq), it is now quite common to end up with many genome assemblies that belong to the same species. In this current context, determining the type strain/species of any new species/genus requires to identify the representive one(s) within a large collection of genomes. The medoid of a genome collection being the one(s) whose sum of distances to all other genomes is minimal, it is an excellent candidate to be the representative genome of a collection. We therefore aim at procuring a bioinformatic tool able to quickly and accurately identify the medoid of any genome collections.Related team publications :
