Brachyspira MLST Databases
This MLST 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.
The Brachyspira MLST website contains schemes that cover the entire Brachyspira genus as well as a number of species-specific schemes.
The whole genus MLST scheme is described in Råsbäck et al. (2007). Development of a multilocus sequence typing scheme for intestinal spirochaetes within the genus Brachyspira. Microbiology 153:4074-4087.
