Cutibacterium acnes 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.

The Cutibacterium acnes MLST scheme is described in McDowell et al. 2012. An expanded multilocus sequence typing scheme for Propionibacterium acnes: investigation of 'pathogenic', 'commensal' and antibiotic resistant strains. PLoS ONE 7(7):e41480.

Database curated by Andrew McDowell.
