Isolate database structure

The isolate databases contain tables for user and isolate information. These tables are linked so that every submitted isolate is associated with a sender in the users table. 

Users table

The users table contains contact information for anybody who sends data to the database or curates it. Every allele sequence and allelic profile has an entry for both the sender and the curator of the data that correspond to an entry in the users table. The information from this table is not displayed on the website, but can be used by the curator to trace who provided a sequence or profile. The fields in this table are:

Isolates table

Isolate databases can contain any field that is deemed appropriate for the particular dataset. However, most databases will have the following fields:

Other fields will be specific for each database. It is possible to set a list of allowed values for any field which ensures that data is entered consistently (and can hence be easily searched). This would be appropriate for fields such as sex, serogroup, disease, and source.

Some fields can be set to look up information from other external databases. For example, in the Neisseria PubMLST database, there are PorA VR1 and VR2 fields where entering a PorA variant will enable the software to retrieve the appropriate peptide sequence hyperlinked to the PorA website.
