Candida glabrata 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.

We have had to make some nomenclature changes to previously assigned STs. Please see the timeline of changes for full details.

This MLST scheme was developed Andrew Dodgson in the laboratories of David Denning (University of Manchester, UK) and David Soll (University of Iowa, USA). It is described in Dodgson et al. 2003. J Clin Microbiol 41:5709-17.

Database curated by Oliver Bader (Institute of Medical Microbiology, University Medical Center Göttingen, Göttingen, Germany). The contents of the database as of 2019 are briefly described in Gabaldón T et al, 2020, as are the correlations of MLST to MLP and whole-genome sequencing data for this species.
