Aspergillus fumigatus MLST Databases

The Aspergillus fumigatus MLST website contains two linked databases - one for allelic profiles and sequences, the other for isolate information. This structure offers advantages over a single database system. Further details can be found here.

MLST has been found to be less discriminatory, more expensive and more labour-intensive than other methods for typing isolates of Aspergillus fumigatus (Vanhee et al. Clin Microbiol Infect 2009; 15:643-650). The method is not recommended as a strain typing tool for this species and this database will no longer be curated or updated.

This MLST scheme was developed and curated by Frank Odds.

Citing the database

The preferred format for citing this website in publications is:

This publication made use of the Aspergillus fumigatus Multi Locus Sequence Typing website (https://pubmlst.org/ afumigatus/) developed by Keith Jolley and sited at the University of Oxford (Jolley et al. 2004, BMC Bioinformatics, 5:86). The development of this site has been funded by the Wellcome Trust.
