We have added an isolate database for Enterobacter cloacae. The typing database was set up in 2013 to support publication of the MLST scheme described in Miyoshi-Akiyama et al. 2013 PLoS One 8:e66358, but until now this had not been linked to isolate records.
We have added an isolate database for Mycobacteroides abscessus complex. The typing database was set up in 2012 to support publication of the MLST scheme described in Kim et al. 2013 Diagn Microbiol Infect Dis 77:143-9, but until now this had not been linked to isolate records.
If you're a curator on PubMLST, you can now modify how you receive E-mail notification of submissions. Reduce the frequency to daily digests if you're getting too many. Options can be set in your PubMLST account settings (https://pubmlst.org/bigsdb).
We have updated the Haemophilus parasuis database to reflect the change in taxonomy to Glaesserella parasuis. Old links will continue to work.
An MLST scheme for Shewanella spp. is now available. This has been developed by Jonatan Martín-Rodríguez and colleagues at the Centre for Translational Microbiome Research, Karolinska Institutet, Sweden. It is described in Martín-Rodríguez et al. 2019 FEMS Microbiol Ecol 95:fiy210.
We have unveiled a new look for the site today. Many thanks to the web development team at Manta Ray Media for all their efforts.
A MLST scheme for Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans, a causative agent of chronic periodontitis, is now available. This scheme has been developed by Niels Nørskov-Lauritsen and Signe Nedergaard, Aarhus University Hospital, Denmark.
A MLST scheme for Staphylococcus chromogenes is now available. This has been developed by George Sensabaugh (University of California), John Barlow (University of Vermont), and colleagues.
A new database and two MLST schemes for Mycoplasma gallisepticum are now available. These schemes are described in Ghanem et al. (2019) Avian Dis 63:693-702 and Bekő et al. (2019) Vet Microbiol 231:191-196.
