Neisseria Sequence Typing Home Page

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.

As well as MLST, the platform contains sequence data for other genetic targets, allowing MLST, PorA, porB, FetA, fHbp, penA, rpoB and other sequences to be queried from the same interface.

Database submissions - We are using an automated system for submitting MLST data to the database curators. Please ensure you use an up-to-date submission template. For other genetic targets please submit directly to the respective curators. Instructions | Log in

For submission of whole genome data please send assembled contigs in a FASTA file along with the standard isolate submission template to Keith Jolley.
