Treponema pallidum subsp. pallidum 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 that we will be upgrading the operating system on the primary database server on Thursday 22 November. Access to the databases will be maintained from a backup server, but offline jobs and access to the automated submission system will be disabled while the work is carried out.

This MLST scheme was developed by Linda Grillová and colleagues at the Masaryk University, Brno, Czech Republic and University of Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland. It is described in Grillová et al. 2018 PLoS One 13:e0200773.
