Brucella 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.

These MLST schemes were developed by Adrian Whatmore and colleagues at the Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA). The 9 locus scheme is described in Whatmore et al. 2007 BMC Microbiol 7:34. The 21 locus scheme is described in Whatmore et al. 2016 Front Microbiol 7:2049.

Database curated by Adrian Whatmore.
