Enterococcus faecium 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 are looking for new curators for this database. If you use this database regularly and would like to assist in the curation effort, please contact Keith Jolley. Please see the brief overview of the role of a curator for more details of the role.

This MLST scheme is described in Homan et al. 2002 J Clin Microbiol 40:1963-71.

Database temporarily curated by Keith Jolley. Thanks to Janetta Top for all her curation efforts over the years.
