Clostridium difficile MLST Database

(new MLST scheme)


The Clostridium difficile 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 MLST scheme was developped by Ludovic Lemée and colleagues
