Step by step one goes very far
Project context and summary :
Integrons drive the spread of antibiotic resistance genes in bacterial populations. While their role is widely known (integron+antibiotic+resistance in PubMed gives > 1700 hits), there was no software available to identify integrons and their different components. We have made integronFinder (with Bertrand Néron) for this (Cury, NAR, 16). We would like to make improvements to IntegronFinder:
- Unit tests to facilitate the development of the tool. Especially since Jean Cury (the main author) will leave the lab in the summer of 2017.
- Add the possibility of using multi-fasta as input.
