The version 3.0 will not be maintained. It is now replaced by version 4.0 which is far more powerful.
Aim of the site
The aim of this site is to facilitate pathogenic bacteria strain genotyping essentially for epidemiological purposes. Typing is based on polymorphic tandem repeat typing (MLVA). This site takes advantage of MLVA properties to provide a simple service for high resolution isolate identification.
General information on the way to generate MLVA data and to identify isolates against the current reference collections can be found in the MLVA wiki! and other support websites(links to articles, protocols, primer information).
Importantly, two sets of databases are available. The first set is public access, and is derived from essentially published data. For a given species, and when this makes sense, data from different publications have been merged. In some cases however, the MLVA markers used by different groups are not the same, because of the current lack of standardisation, so that different databases may be available for the same species.
The second set is restricted access. These are ongoing projects, and if you are interested in joining one such project, you just need to create an account, and then contact the creator of the database you are interested in. We do not need to interfere with this process.
We hope you will find this tool of use for your work.
