Lactococcus lactis subsp. lactis MLST Databases


The Lactococcus lactis subsp. lactis MLST website contains two linked databases - one for allelic profiles and sequences, the other for isolate information. This structure offers advantages over a single database system. Further details can be found here.


This scheme is described in Passerini et al. 2010 Genes but not genomes reveal bacterial domestication of Lactococcus lactis.

The database is curated by Marie-Line Mingot and Pascal Le Bourgeois.

This MLST scheme was developed by the Bacterial Genome Evolution team (formely Genetics of Lactic Acid Bacteria team) in the "Laboratoire de Microbiologie et Génétique Moléculaire" (Toulouse, France).
