News and Updates

10.04.2014: The database was ported to University of Warwick with all the previous functionality and data from University College Cork.

16.06.2011: The database backend was changed from gadfly to PostgreSQL. All data submitted on the website is now stored directly in PostgreSQL. This eliminates occasional previous problems with data loss and allele number assignments. It is also possible now to identify the submitter of a strain or ST. This will facilitate email communication by the curators when additional information is needed. This information is not publicly available. The new backend has increased the speed when making strain queries on the website.

A team of curators has been created for the E.coli MLST databases - Vimalkumar Velayudhan, Torsten Semmler and Scott Weissman.

24.01.2007: A functional database is now available for Yersinia pseudotuberculosis. Several publications have now appeared on the E. coli (Wirth et al., 2006) and S. enterica (Falush et al., 2006; Didelot et al., 2006) databases.

25.04.2006: Free public download of sequences and list of STs for all databases. Private strains are now declared public automatically one year after the data was entered.

23.11.2004: Semi-automated curation of databases implemented. Software version 0.3

03.11.2003: Functional entry page and sequence/allele query page. Functional user administration. Functional databases for Moraxella catarrhalis, Escherichia coli and Salmonella enterica. Software version 0.2
