Abstract

Eike Steinig investigated the transmission dynamics of community-associated MRSA in Far North Queensland and Papua New Guinea. He developed bioinformatics methods based on portable nanopore sequencing technology to infer epidemiological outbreak parameters and clinical genotypes of bacterial pathogens, with applications in rural and remote hospitals that lack sequencing infrastructure.
