Streptococcus pneumoniae 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.

Please note we are now using a new submission system - further details.

This database has been migrated from www.mlst.net.

This MLST scheme was originally developed by Mark Enright and colleagues in the laboratory of Brian Spratt.

Database jointly curated by Angela Brueggemann (University of Oxford) and Mark van der Linden (RWTH Aachen University).
