Burkholderia cepacia complex MLST Databases

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.

Please note that we will be upgrading the operating system on the primary database server on Thursday 22 November. Access to the databases will be maintained from a backup server, but offline jobs and access to the automated submission system will be disabled while the work is carried out.

This MLST scheme was developed by Adam Baldwin in the laboratory of Chris Dowson (Warwick University, UK) and in close collaboration with Esh Mahenthiralingam (Cardiff University, UK). Other collaborators involved in the development of this scheme included David Honeybourne (Heartlands Hospital, UK) and Martin Maiden (Oxford University, UK).

Database curated by Charlotte Peeters.
