Note: Ridom StaphType users are asked to submit their new spa-repeats
and -types via the StaphType software synchronization process. This form is
intended only for SpaServer users not (yet :-) using the software.
Please note, that we only accept NEW repeats and types!
If your uploaded sequence data contain indeed a new spa-type and/or –repeat and is of sufficient
quality then the assignment will be finished within 1-2 weeks after submission.
Due to the new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) we do not
any more ask for personal data, therefore submissions will not be
answered by email.
Please use after two weeks the Search for Isolate ID
functionality to check the assigned spa-type of your submitted isolate.
The sequences must contain the following 5' and 3' signatures on the
correct positions to allow a reliable spa-typing:
The signatures are numbered according to the forward strand
of S. aureus (GenBank accession no. J01786).
