Submission of data

All users are welcome to submit their strain information and new allele sequences to our databases for Campylobacter species.  This information will be made available on this web site.  In order that queries and requests for strains can be addressed to the submitter of isolate data, the name and affiliation of the submitter will be displayed on the website.  E-mail addresses are not displayed but can be requested from the curator.  Please contact the curator or database manager if you do not wish your details to be displayed.  

In order to maintain the quality of the data, the databases are curated and all submissions will be checked before entry.

Automated submission system

We have introduced an automated system for submission of new alleles and isolate data.

Users will need an account in order to use the submission system. Please register if you do not already have an account.

Please read the submission system documentation for further details.
