Acinetobacter baumannii MLST Databases

This site uses two linked databases powered by the BIGSdb genomics platform. The sequence definition database contains allele sequence and MLST profile definitions whereas the isolate database contains provenance and epidemiological information. Further details about BIGSdb can be found in Jolley & Maiden 2010, BMC Bioinformatics 11:595.

This scheme is described in Bartual et al. Development of a multilocus sequence typing scheme for characterization of clinical isolates of Acinetobacter baumannii. J Clin Microbiol 2005, 43:4382-4390.

Please note: Large-scale modifications have been made to the database resulting in allele and profile designation changes. These changes were necessary to incorporate sequence data from previously published works. Authors should, therefore, check whether sequence and profile designations used in manuscripts recently submitted or in preparation have changed. We apologize for any inconvenience.

This MLST scheme was developed by Sergio G. Bartual in the laboratory of Francisco Rodríguez-Valera (Miguel Hernandez, Alicante, Spain) and in close collaboration with Harald Seifert (University of Cologne, Germany).

Database curated by Hilmar Wisplinghoff.
