Pilot Phase Started April 2020: Data for 2632 isolates collected
The CARD:Live project collects pathogen identification, MLST, AMR gene list (RGI Perfect & Strict hits only), date, and geographical region for genome sequences submitted to RGI online, providing a dynamic view of antibiotic resistant isolates being analyzed around the world. All information collected is based on consent and no sequence information is retained. We ask RGI users to please consider sharing their AMR metadata so we can build and share a dynamic data set of antibiotic resistance pathogens from around the globe.
Currently, CARD:Live is running as a pilot project to assess community engagement and as a software test. As data accumulates, we will pilot geotemporal plots of AMR gene frequencies across the globe, including downloadable summary data.
Example data collected from a single RGI submission:
