Wolbachia 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.

Citation for use of the Wolbachia MLST system is Baldo et al. 2006 Appl Environ Microbiol 72:7098-7110.

As per public release guidelines, all data inserted into the MLST site as 'private' will be made public upon publication or 2 years following submission to the database, whichever comes first.

Please note that wsp variants are no longer being accepted for curation.

The Wolbachia MLST Database is curated by Cordelia Forkpah. Please contact her with questions about uploading sequences. Curation is supported by funds to Jack Werren (University of Rochester USA) from the US National Science Foundation.
