EcoCyc: Encyclopedia of E. coli Genes and Metabolism

EcoCyc is a bioinformatics database that describes the genome, metabolic network, and regulatory network of Escherichia coli. EcoCyc data are derived from literature-based curation of the entire genome, transcriptional regulatory network, transporters, and metabolic pathways.

EcoCyc logoEcoCyc, a member of the BioCyc Database Collection, is a bioinformatics database that describes the genome and the biochemical machinery of Escherichia coli K-12 MG1655. The long-term project goal is to facilitate a system-level understanding of E. coli by cataloguing the cell's molecular components and their functions. EcoCyc is an electronic reference source for biologists who work with E. coli and related microorganisms.

The EcoCyc website supports comparative analyses of multiple E. coli strains and analysis of high-throughput data.
