Colibri is a database dedicated to the analysis of the genome of Escherichia coli. Its purpose is to collate and integrate various aspects of the genomic information from E. coli. Colibri provides a complete dataset of DNA and protein sequences derived from the paradigm strain E. coli K-12, linked to the relevant annotations and functional assignments. It allows one to easily browse through these data and retrieve information, using various criteria (gene names, location, keywords, etc.) and sequence analysis tools (pattern search, BLAST, etc.)
The data contained in Colibri originates from two major sources of information:
- The reference genomic DNA sequence from the E. coli Genome Project
- The feature annotations from the EcoGene data collection provided by Kenn Rudd.
