Due to the retirement of Brian Spratt it has been agreed to transfer the MLST databases hosted at mlst.net from Imperial College London to Oxford, where Keith Jolley and Martin Maiden have kindly agreed to host them at PubMLST.org.
The pneumococcal site has now transferred - other species databases will be migrating to PubMLST.org in due course. This agreement will provide the security of these MLST databases for the benefit of the international microbiology community.
David Aanensen and Brian Spratt
To access the database please visit: http://pubmlst.org/spneumoniae/
N.B. This site will no longer be up-to-date as all new pneumococcal strains are now only being added to the PubMLST site
