This section allows users to get a bird's-eye view of the population structure of twenty bacterial pathogens as well as their clinical metadata. In addition, as the SNP typing approach needs reference genome, the 'Search best reference genome for SNP strategy' function returns for each sequence type (ST) the reference genomes used in BacWGSTdb. This information can help users select appropriate reference genomes in BROWSE and TOOLS.
