NIH scientists studied samples of antibiotic-resistant Enterobacteriaceae collected from patients and a hospital environment. They used the PacBio RS II DNA Sequencing System to analyze and assemble the bacterial genomes, and then traced transmission path based on genomic data. BluePippin was used to remove DNA fragments less than 5 Kb from the PacBio library.
