- MLST is a nucleotide sequence based approach for the unambiguous characterization of isolates of bacteria and other organisms via the internet.

-The aim of MLST is to provide a portable, accurate, and highly discriminating typing system that can be used for most bacteria and some other organisms. It is envisaged that this approach will be particularly helpful for the typing of bacterial pathogens.

-To achieve this aim we have taken the proven concepts of multilocus enzyme electrophoresis (MLEE) and have adapted them so that alleles at each locus are defined directly, by nucleotide sequencing, rather than indirectly from the electrophoretic moblity of their gene products.

when you click on any country you know the number of isolation in it.

The End
Staphylococcus aureus shape

is group of bacteria that can cause a multitude of diseases.

for example :
skin infections :
such as pimples, impetigo, boils, cellulitis, folliculitis, carbuncles, scalded skin syndrome, and abscesses.
life-threatening diseases :
such as pneumonia, meningitis, osteomyelitis, endocarditis, toxic shock syndrome, bacteremia, and sepsis.
used to simplifies the problem of depicting the evolutionary relationships among closely related genotypes.
