A research team from the UAEU / CMHS submitted the first genetic sequencing of fourteen isolates and four new alleles of Blastocystis to the pubMLST platform as the first applicants from the United Arab Emirates. PubMLST is a website, used by researchers around the world, that hosts a collection of open-access, curated databases of different microbial sequence data with provenance and phenotype information. The importance of Blastocystis lies in its potential to cause a range of chronic digestive disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome and colorectal cancer.
