Pseudomonas aeruginosa MLST Database

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.

We are looking for new curators for this database. If you use this database regularly and would like to assist in the curation effort, please contact Keith Jolley. Please see the brief overview of the role of a curator for more details of the role.

This MLST scheme was developed by Chris Dowson and Barry Curran at the University of Warwick, UK. Primers for aroE were designed by Daniel Jonas and Hajo Grundmann.

Database temporarily curated by Keith Jolley. Thanks to Elli Pinnock for all her curation efforts over the years.
