Whereas classic MLST analysis types isolates against a small set of gene fragments (typical 500bp fragments for a set of seven house-keeping genes), cgMLST (core-genome MLST) and wgMLST (whole-genome MLST) extends the analysis to thousands of loci, usually containing the complete coding gene sequences for the alleles for a given locus.
This section of the manual describes the MLST Scheme tools, which can be used to work with both cgMLST and wgMLST, as well as classic 7-gene schemes. The MLST Scheme typing can be applied either directly to the NGS reads of an isolate, or to an assembly of an isolate.
