Source of isolates submitted to the Streptococcus pneumoniae database
The typing database contains nomenclature - allele definitions that provide an identifier for every unique allele sequence, and MLST profiles that index each unique combination of alleles with a sequence type (ST).
The isolate database consists of isolate records containing provenance and phenotype information linked to molecular typing information. These records may also include genome assemblies.
In addition to the library, the PubMLST database contains many genomes submitted by its users. These can be accessed from the isolate database by filtering on sequence bin size in a query.
