Resources on the Internet

Here we historically provided links to research resources beyond our lab. Many have become invalid over the years; broken links are periodically fixed or deleted, but no wholesale update is anticipated. We are open to suggestions for additional links.

Other Enterobacterial genome projects (aka the Deluge)

Keeping track of the multitude of other genome projects has become a Sisyphean task; there are well over 1000 completed or ongoing sequencing projects for strains of E. coli alone. In addition to a few enterobacterial projects, here are links to major microbial sequencing centers, multi-organism databases, and related resources.
