A software for the classification of organisms based on results from multiplex pyrosequencing algorithms performed on the Pyro-Mark ID System (Qiagen). The assays can be designed using the software mpsqed available from https://sourceforge.net/projects/mpsqed/
Pyrosequencing can be applied for Single-Nucleotide-Polymorphism (SNP)-based pathogen typing or for providing sequence information of short DNA stretches. However, for some pathogens molecular typing cannot be performed relying on a single SNP or short sequence stretch, necessitating the consideration of several genomic regions. A promising rapid approach is the simultaneous application of multiple sequencing primers, called multiplex pyrosequencing. These primers generate a fingerprint-pyrogram which is constituted by the sum of all individual pyrograms originating from each primer used. MultiPSQ allows the analysis and classification of multiplex-pyrograms originating from various pyrosequencing primers.
