Scientific Publications & Application Notes

The Science of Antimicrobial Resistance

Review published in MedNous (https://www.mednous.com/) on AMR and potential solutions

Integrating Culture-based Antibiotic Resistance Profiles with Whole-genome Sequencing Data for 11,087 Clinical Isolates

Joint publication with Prof. Keller's Group Keller’s group at Saarland University introducing GEAR-base as a standardized research resource for antibiotic resistance genotypes and phenotypes. GEAR-base was originally established in collaboration with Universität des Saarlandes and Siemens and forms the nucleus of our proprietary ARESdb now combining whole-genome sequencing data for > 35,000 isolates with quantitative antibiotic susceptibility data for >100 antibiotics..

Optimizing plasmid identification for clinical bacterial Isolates using Next-Generation Sequencing

Joint publication with Prof. Keller’s group at Saarland University assessing the heterogeneity of in silico plasmid predictions based on whole-genome-sequenced clinical isolates. The study identified a high degree of heterogeneity and variation in sensitivity and precision for plasmid identification across taxa and computational approaches. Nevertheless, existing open source tools are very valuable for investigating the plasmid-borne resistome. Building upon the peer-reviewed research findings, the proprietary ARES Technology allows for fast and optimized plasmid identification from whole-genome sequencing data.

GEAR-base: The GEnetic Antibiotic Resistance & Susceptibility Database

Joint publication with Prof. Keller's Group Keller’s group at Saarland University introducing GEAR-base as a standardized research resource for antibiotic resistance genotypes and phenotypes. GEAR-base builds on Ares’ proprietary collection of pathogen genomes and resistance profiles and we invite you to join us to further advance antibiotic resistance research. Please sign up at https://gear-base.com or contact us at contact@ares-genetics.com and you will receive an invitation to join GEAR-base for academic research use upon publication of the accompanying manuscript (currently under review).

Ares Genetics and Curetis Pharma Services

We offer a comprehensive portfolio of solutions for antimicrobial drug discovery, clinical development, and product lifecycle management. Our solutions aim at supporting data-driven target and lead prioritization, accelerating clinical trials, augmenting clinical data for regulatory submissions, and informed antimicrobial drug use for effective antibiotic stewardship post launch.

Fast and accurate taxonomic Identification of clinical bacterial Isolates using Next-Generation Sequencing

Joint publication with Prof. Keller’s group at Saarland University comparing genome versus proteome-based identification of clinical bacterial isolates. Key findings include that taxonomic identification based on the proteome (by mass spectrometry, MS-biotyping) and the genome (by next-generation sequencing, NGS) show high concordance for clinical application. While NGS successfully resolved all clinical isolates on the species level, for 12% of the cases MS-biotyping resulted in genus level classification only. Building upon the peer-reviewed research findings, ARES Technology allows for fast and accurate taxonomic identification on the species level.
