TWIW database dump
Two Weeks in the World is a global research collaboration which seeks to shed light on various aspects of antimicrobial resistance. The research project has resulted in a dataset of 3100 clinically relevant bacterial genomes with pertaining metadata. “Clinically relevant” refers to the fact that the bacteria from which the genomes were obtained, were all concluded as being a cause of clinical manifestations of infection. The metadata refers to the data describing the infection from which the bacteria was obtained, like geographic origin and approximate collection date. The bacteria were collected from 59 microbiological diagnostic units in 35 countries around the world during 2020. The data from the project consists of tabular data and genomic sequence data. The tabular data is available as a mysql dump (relational database) and as csv files. The tabular data includes the infection metadata, the results from bioinformatic analyses (species prediction, identification of acquired resistance genes and phylogenetic analysis) as well as the pertaining accession numbers of the individual genomic sequence data, which are available through the European Nucleotide Archive (ENA). At time of submission, the project also has a dedicated web app, from which data can be browsed and downloaded: https://twiw.genomicepidemiology.org/
This complete dataset is created and shared according to the FAIR principles and has large reuse potential within the research fields of antimicrobial resistance, clinical microbiology and global health.
.v2: Author list and readme has been updated. And a file containing column descriptions, for the database dump, has been added: TWIW_dbcolumns_explained.csv.
