Submission of data

Please note that PubMLST is not the authoritative database for MLST, cgMLST, or wgMLST for this organism. We synchronize alleles and scheme definitions for these schemes from Enterobase. Submissions for allele and profile assignment need to be submitted to Enterobase - we cannot assign them.

All users are welcome to submit isolate data to our database for Escherichia.  This information will be made available on this web site.

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 isolate data.
