A collection of open-access, curated databases that integrate population sequence data with provenance and phenotype information for over 100 different microbial species and genera.
RT @sylvainbrisse Involved in #diphtheria pathogen sequencing? Please note that the MLST strain nomenclature platform for diphtheriae/ulcerans has moved to BIGSdb-Pasteur https://t.co/SohTII38Yd Big thanks to @MaidenLab @keithajolley for earlier maintenance and Sebastien Bridel for data migration https://t.co/BWi1ssToU3
A MLST scheme for Bacteroides fragilis is now available on PubMLST. This has been developed by Ulrik Stenz Justesen and Flemming Damgaard Nielsen at the Odense University Hospital, Denmark. https://t.co/eJv2laMWci
RT @MaidenLab Go to https://t.co/q64NIonHQq to see how dashboards enhance accessiblity to and linkage of all sequence, genomic, provenance, and phenotype data for your favorite bug (we have >100 open-access databases, but if your fave bug is not featured, why not contact us to set one up?). https://t.co/8VHyix5hHC
@MarDir6 Thank you for volunteering. PubMLST relies on our international community of curators - we couldn't do it without you!
Videos from the PubMLST forum event celebrating 10 years of the @M_R_F Meningococcal Genome Library are now available on the PubMLST YouTube channel. https://t.co/vnUELcHv69
To mark this anniversary, join us on 17 September 2021. Two morning sessions will highlight the establishment and public health application of the meningococcal genome library and afternoon sessions will highlight the contributions from external users, including industry.
Shortly after its inception, the MRF-MGL contributed to the introduction of the ACYW meningococcal vaccines into the UK and it remains an essential resource, nationally and internationally.
Over this time, sequence-based molecular typing has become an essential component of invasive meningococcal disease surveillance world-wide and standardised typing methods and schemes have allowed comparability across reference and research laboratories in different countries.
Embedded within the https://t.co/leydcwWim4 platform MRF-MGL stores provenance, demographic, epidemiological, and whole genome sequence information for more than 5,000 meningococci isolated from patients in the UK over the past 10 years.
The next PubMLST forum event will be a hybrid meeting to celebrate 10 years of the @M_R_F Meningococcal Genome Library. It will be on 17 September from 10am UK (GMT+1) via Zoom and in person. Register at https://t.co/XJkxJBGoJ9.
