MLST schemes can be extended by adding individual sequences to the alleles in the scheme:
Databases () | NGS-MLST | Add Sequences to MLST Scheme ()
This will bring up a dialog as shown in figure 16.8, where it is possible to select the scheme you would like to add gene(s) to.
In the next step(s) - there are as many wizard windows as genes in the scheme - it is possible to assign sequences to each gene successively (see figure 16.9).
Specify a location to save the scheme(s). We recommend to use a folder for saving all the databases and MLST schemes necessary to run the CLC Microbial Genomics Module tools.
The sequences added in this way cannot be combined to an allelic profile and a sequence type, and will thus only contribute to expanding the number of allelic types.
