ResFinder is a database that captures antimicrobial resistance genes from whole-genome data sets.[1] The database uses BLAST in order to accomplish this. The database allows inputs of full sequences, partial sequences, or short sequence reads from other sequencing platforms.[1] Additionally, users can set their own threshold for detection. By default it is at 100% ID. ResFinder pulls from other database such as the Marilyn Roberts database, the Lahey database (now defunct) and ARDB. Other sources include published literature including reviews.[2][3]
