rRNA gene variant model

Accession MO:0000006
DefinitionThe rRNA gene variant model is an AMR detection model used to identify ribosomal RNA (rRNA) genes with mutations shown clinically to confer resistance to known antibiotic(s) relative to the wild-type rRNA sequence. Like the protein variant model, rRNA gene variant models detect the presence of an rRNA sequence based on its homolog, and then secondarily search submitted query sequences for a curated mutation. This model includes an rRNA gene reference sequence, a BLASTN bitscore cutoff, and a set of mapped resistance variants. A submitted sequence must have both high homolog to the reference sequence and include a known resistance variant to be detected.
