Burkholderia pseudomallei 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 MLST scheme is described in Godoy et al. 2003. Multilocus sequence typing and evolutionary relationships among the causative agents of melioidosis and glanders, Burkholderia pseudomallei and Burkholderia mallei. J Clin Microbiol 41:2068-2079.

Alternative primers for this scheme are described in Price et al. 2016. Improved multilocus sequence typing of Burkholderia pseudomallei and closely related species. J Med Microbiol 65:992-7.

Database curated by Jessica Webb. We would like to thank Erin Price for her curation efforts over the years.
