Bacillus cereus group Multi-Scheme MLST Supercluster Browsing

Here you can browse and download the precomputed superclusters of genetically closely related isolates that have been built using all isolates available in the database and based on MLST data. The superclusters have been computed using a tree-independent clustering algorithm (Supercluster Info) and contain two or more isolates that share identical sequences at all loci of at least one of the five MLST schemes. Within a supercluster, each isolate shares a MLST profile with at least one other strain in the group, but all isolates in a supercluster may not be identical. These multi-scheme MLST-based superclusters, added to singleton isolates, i.e., isolates that do not share a MLST profile to any other isolate, give a genetic overview or "snapshot" of the Bacillus cereus group population based on multiple MLST schemes.

The whole snapshot based on 5106 isolates can be browsed interactively below by clicking and mouseover. The superclusters and singletons can be colored by species or source (origin) of the isolates. Superclusters are labeled by number while singletons are labeled by strain name. Follow the link below to obtain a detailed composition of the superclusters and a listing of the singletons, and to view the positions of the isolates in the phylogenetic MLST supertree. To build superclusters using selected subsets of isolates and schemes, use the "Find similar isolates" function in the SuperCAT Home page.
In addition, the superclusters have been mapped onto the supertree, giving a combined and integrative genetic and phylogenetic snapshot of the Bacillus cereus group population, which can be browsed in the Genetic Network page.
