Streptococcus pyogenes 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.

We are now using a new submission system - further details.

This database has migrated from www.mlst.net.

Please note that a few isolates lack the yqiL gene. In the mlst.net database such allelic profiles represented the null allele as yqiL-67. This has been changed to yqiL-0 in PubMLST.

This MLST scheme is described in Enright et al. 2001 Infect Immun 69:2416-27.

Database curated by Debra Bessen.
