Welcome to the Double Locus Sequence Typing (DLST) webpage!

DLST is a fast and simple sequence based method to type bacteria for epidemiological investigation. This method is based on the sequencing of c.a. 500bp of two highly variable loci.

DLST has been shown to offer a high resolution and it allows studying both local and international datasets .

For each locus, an arbitrary number is assigned to each allele and the combination of both alleles constitutes the DLST type.

The purpose of this DLST website is to synchronize the DLST alleles from various laboratories and geographical regions.

For comments, queries, or suggestions please contact the curator.
