GIRC - Sakai page

The Genome Information Reseach Center (GIRC) database at Osaka University (Japan) provides a variety of genome links. This page, however, deals exclusively with Escherichia coli O157:H7, a major food-borne infectious pathogen that causes diarrhea, haemorrhagic colitis, and haemolytic uremic syndrome. We have determined the genome sequence of an O157:H7 strain isolated from the Sakai outbreak which occurred in 1996 in Sakai City, Osaka Pref. Japan. All genomic related data together with links to the respective publications is given.
