coliBASE is a database for comparative genomics of E.coli, Shigella and Salmonella. Unlike other online E.coli resources, coliBASE attempts to represent the full diversity of E.coli and related organisms, with a particular focus on pathogenicity. The database includes information from all the available E.coli, Shigella and Salmonella genomes (finished and unfinished), and provides novel visualisation and analysis tools, including an viewer that allows rapid comparisons between homologous regions from different strains to identify insertions, deletions etc.
