Databases related to the Escherichia coli K12 systematic sequencing project

International E.coli Alliance: The E.coli Database Portal

The SRS sequence retrival system of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory maintained at the European Institute for Bioinformatics (EBI) European Institute for Bioinformatics (EBI) will provide you with a variety of search modes. SRS also provides a direct link to ECDC.

The SwissProt databank at the University of Geneva provides information about the proteins encodes by E.coli. SwissProt also maintains a special collection of open reading frames. A special file ecoli.txt may be obtained from Amos Bairoch, Medical Biochemistry Department, Centre Medical Universitaire, 1211 Geneva 4 (Switzerland) Bairoch@cmu.unige.ch. Or use instead SwissProt WWW. Links to SwissProt are provided within ECDC. Links to Enzyme database or Protein structural motif database are provided within the Swissprot files.

http://wit.mcs.anl.gov/WIT2/ The Enzymes and Metabolic Pathways database is maintained at the Institute of Theoretical and Experimental Biophysics, Russian Academy of Sciences, 14292 Pushchino, Russia and the Mathematics and Computer Science Division, Argonne National Laboratory, Argonne, IL 60439.

EC-Enzyme database
Organized by the systematic enzyme classification (EC) system, you may find information about your enzyme derived from different biological sources. The database is maintained in Kyoto/Japan and in Geneva.
