A new compilation of MLVA data has been released, under database name Brucella2010. It contains MLVA16 data from 707 isolates. Two preselected panels of loci are proposed in addition to the full 16 loci. MLVA8 alias panel1 corresponds to the 8 loci Bruce06, Bruce08, Bruce11, Bruce12, Bruce42, Bruce43, Bruce45, Bruce55. MLVA11 is the 11 loci including panel 1 plus 2A, i.e. Bruce18, Bruce19, Bruce21.
The previous releases, Brucella2007 and Brucella2009 are kept for compatibility reasons, but they are fully included within Brucella2010 which is the recommended database.
