|Old Iso Number||Fill only if the same strain has already been submitted to the database (e.g. you are using it to submit new information on the same strain, such as MIRUs data for a strain for which only Spoligotyping data was submitted).||OPTIONAL|
|No. of isolates||If possible, mention only 1 isolate/patient (which means that if you have 15 isolates with the same pattern, but from different patients, please enter them separately, with individual isolate numbers for each).||REQUIRED|
|Year of isolation||As a 4 digit value, e.g. 1999, 2001 etc., if unknown let the cell empty||REQUIRED|
