Corynebacterium diphtheriae 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 was developed by Frances Bolt, University of Warwick, UK.

Database curated by Edgar Badell-Ocando.
