Staphylococcus aureus MLST Databases

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.

This MLST scheme was developed by Mark Enright in the laboratory of Brian Spratt, Imperial College London, in collaboration with the laboratories of Nick Day and Sharon Peacock.

Database curated by Akinyemi Fasemore.
