According to the 2017 World Health Organization’s Guide Integrated Surveillance of Antimicrobial Resistance in Foodborne Bacteria: Application of a One Health Approach, 

“One of the most powerful advantages of WGS (whole genome sequencing), is that it eliminates the need to return to the laboratory to conduct retrospective analyses in response to emerging hazards. This was illustrated in November 2015 by the discovery of colistin resistance in swine E. coli from China. The gene conferring this resistance (mcr-1) was present on a mobile plasmid. This was the first identified instance of transmissible resistance to this important drug. … By providing definitive genotype information, WGS offers the highest practical resolution for detecting and characterizing the full complement of resistance determinants, whether acquired exogenously or arising by mutation, including resistance to antibiotics not routinely tested. In doing so, WGS makes it possible to quickly evaluate the nature and magnitude of emerging resistance hazards and can serve a vital function to integrated surveillance of antimicrobial resistance.”
