A publicly accessible database for Clostridioides difficile genome sequences supports tracing of transmission chains and epidemics
Clostridioides difficile is a major cause of healthcare-associated diarrhea and causes large infection outbreaks. Whole-genome sequencing is increasingly applied for genotyping C. difficile, with the objectives to monitor and curb the pathogen's spread. More ...
Our metadatabase of organism-linked information covering the multifarious aspects of bacterial and archaeal biodiversity.
TYGS offers a truly genome-based classification and identification of prokaryotic strains without overestimating phylogenetic confidence.
LPSN is a compilation of all names of Bacteria & Archaea which have been validly published according to the Bacteriological Code.
Since STR microsatellites are stable as well as highly polymorphic in human populations, STR profiling is shown to be ideal for authentication of human cell line samples.
