Neisseria Sequence Typing Home Page

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.

As well as MLST, the platform contains sequence data for other genetic targets, allowing MLST, PorA, porB, FetA, fHbp, penA, rpoB and other sequences to be queried from the same interface.

Citing the database

This publication made use of the Neisseria Multi Locus Sequence Typing website (https://pubmlst.org/ neisseria/) sited at the University of Oxford (Jolley et al. Wellcome Open Res 2018, 3:124 [version 1; referees: 2 approved]). The development of this site has been funded by the Wellcome Trust and European Union.
