Today the Comprehensive Antibiotic Resistance Database turns 10 years old! While it started a few years before this in the laboratory of Dr. Gerry Wright, the first publication describing the database as a public resource was published on June 11, 2023. CARD has grown a lot since that first publication, with our latest update published at the start of 2023 (see CARD’s publications).

CARD: Expert-curated collection of molecular sequences and mutations underlying AMR, organized by the Antibiotic Resistance Ontology (ARO). RGI: Prediction of complete resistome from genomic and metagenomic data. Resistomes & Variants: Pre-compiled resistomes, allelic variants, and AMR gene prevalence data for priority pathogens. Annotation Services: Have the CARD team annotate your genomic data. Hosting Services: Host your own genome sequence collections on the CARD website, private & password-secure, with annotation constantly updated by RGI. Bait Capture: Hybridization bait enrichment of AMR alleles for your metagenomic sequencing projects.

Thank you to the many staff, students, collaborators, and users who have contributed to the growth of CARD!
