Submission of data
All users are welcome to submit their new allele sequences to our database for Streptococcus pneumoniae. This information will be made available on this web site.
In order to maintain the quality of the data, the databases are curated and all submissions will be checked before entry. Therefore, please send your data to the curator of the database:
Automated submission system
We have introduced an automated system for submission of new alleles, profiles and isolate data.
- New allele sequences need to be trimmed to the start and end sites of the locus (see existing alleles for comparison). Sequences determined by whole genome methods can be submitted as FASTA files. Sequences determined by Sanger methods should be accompanied by ABI/SCF trace files, which can be uploaded as supporting data. Please note that if sequences differ by more than 5 nucleotides to the closest existing allele, you should also provide the allele ids (or make a submission if new) for the other MLST alleles as well as the serotype of the isolate.
- New profile/ST assignment requires that you submit data for an isolate that has that profile. Please add the isolate name to the id field of the profile submission and make a corresponding submission to the isolate database.
- Whole genome data can be submitted through the system. Please upload new isolate records and attach contig files as supporting files. Contigs should be in a single FASTA file for each isolate.
Users will need an account in order to use the submission system. Please register if you do not already have an account.
Please read the submission system documentation for further details.
The template files listed below will help you upload your data in the correct format.
