Borrelia 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.

This database has migrated from www.mlst.net.

Please note that alleles and STs with numbers of >=1,000 described in Table 4 and supplementary tables in Coipan et al. (2016) Infect Genet Evol 42:66-76 have not been submitted to this database and nomenclature used in this paper should not be regarded as authoritative.

This MLST scheme is described in Margos et al. 2008 Proc Natl Acad Sci USA 105:8730-5.

Database curated by Gabriele Margos.
