The Clermont PCR method of phylotyping Escherichia coli has remained a useful classification scheme despite the proliferation of higher-resolution sequence typing schemes. We have implemented an in silico Clermont PCR method as both a web app and as a command-line tool to allow researchers to easily apply this phylotyping scheme to genome assemblies easily.
