Submission of data

All users are welcome to submit their strain information and new allele sequences to our databases for Neisseria species. This information will be made available on this web site.  In order that queries and requests for strains can be addressed to the submitter of isolate data, the name and affiliation of the submitter will be displayed on the website.  E-mail addresses are not displayed but can be requested from the curator.

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 new alleles (all loci except those gene targets listed below), profiles and isolate data.

Users will need an account in order to use the submission system. Please register if you do not already have an account.

Please read the submission system documentation for further details.

Other gene targets

Please send trace files (both forward and reverse) for assignment directly to the appropriate curator by E-mail.

Citing the database

The preferred format for citing this website in publications is:

This publication made use of the Neisseria Multi Locus Sequence Typing website (https://pubmlst.org/ neisseria/) developed by Keith Jolley and sited at the University of Oxford (Jolley & Maiden 2010, BMC Bioinformatics, 11:595). The development of this site has been funded by the Wellcome Trust and European Union.
