MLST schemes

This database primarily contains allele sequence and profile definition data for MLST schemes hosted on other sites. Where schemes are primarily hosted on other sites these sites remain authoritative for all definitions used. They are being hosted here so that sequence types can be identified in multispecies whole genome databases on PubMLST.org.

The site uses the Bacterial Isolate Genome Sequence Database (BIGSdb) platform. Further details about BIGSdb can be found in Jolley & Maiden 2010, BMC Bioinformatics 11:595.

Schemes from other sites available here include:

  • Escherichia coli (Achtman and Pasteur schemes)
  • Klebsiella pneumoniae (Pasteur scheme)
  • Moraxella catarrhalis (Achtman scheme)
  • Salmonella enterica (Achtman scheme)
  • Yersinia pseudotuberculosis (Achtman scheme)
