Streptococcus suis 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.

This database has migrated from www.mlst.net. Please note that information regarding creation dates and submitters of allele and profile data submitted prior to the migration date (2016-02-02) are not accurate as these were not previously recorded.
This MLST scheme was developed by Samantha King and Adrian Whatmore at the Univeristy of Warwick, UK. It is described in King et al. 2002 Development of a multilocus sequence typing scheme for Streptococcus suis: Identification of virulent clones and potential capsular serotype exchange. J Clin Microbiol 40:3671-3680.
