SLST for Cutibacterium acnes (formerly Propionibacterium acnes)

Sequence Typing of Cutibacterium acnes (formerly Propionibacterium acnes)

Paste your sequence(s) in fasta format in the box below (see example).
The program will look for the SLST fragment within your sequences, so trimming is not needed.
If your sequence is on the reverse/complement strand the SLST sequence will also be identified.

Paste in your sequence or select a fasta file:

New STs added:
Updated: 20 MAY 2017
Number of STs: 106

Information on primers and PCR programs regarding the SLST can be found HERE.

Found a new sequence type?
Please send us the new sequence if you have verified that the sequence is matching the reference sequence.
Make sure that the sequence does not contain any non-nucleotide letters or gaps (e.g. "n", "w" and "r").
