BacWGSTdb, is designed for monitoring the emergence and outbreak of important bacterial pathogens. In detail, it serves two particular purposes: Typing & Tracking. The former refers to an integrated genotyping at both the traditional multi-locus sequence typing (MLST) and whole-genome sequencing typing (WGST) level. The latter refers to source tracking (i.e., finding highly similar isolates) according to the typing result and isolates information stored in BacWGSTdb.

  For users who have sequenced genome of their query isolates, please visit Tools page. For users who investigate using the metadata in BacWGSTdb only, please visit Browse page.
