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.
Topics discussed will be:
* The role of curators
* The process of handling submissions
* How curation can be improved with automation
We are organising a forum to bring together existing curators and anybody who has a potential interest in joining the team - all are welcome. This will be held online via Zoom on Feb 5, 2-3.30pm GMT (UK). Please register for the event at: https://t.co/XsSRrSR2vF.
@karinlag Not explicitly, but you could query the API to find schemes matching any term, e.g. using the script at https://t.co/Zxu3ErPHiz. If you then go to the appropriate database you can find more scheme info by following links from 'Information' ... 'Database status'.
The species id tool, incorporated in PubMLST databases is now much quicker. https://t.co/Ox29W8EMXM

The IRIS project nicely demonstrates how the PubMLST database infrastructure can be used to facilitate both public and private data collection and organisation for a large international consortium.
