ready EcoCyc E. coli Database


General Information
EcoCyc is a model organism database for Escherichia coli K-12 MG1655. EcoCyc curation captures literature-based information on the functions of individual E. coli gene products, metabolic pathways, and regulation of E. coli gene expression. EcoCyc has been curated from 37,000 publications as of 2019. Updates to EcoCyc content continue to improve the comprehensive picture of E. coli biology. The utility of EcoCyc is enhanced by new tools available on the EcoCyc web site, and the development of EcoCyc as a teaching tool is increasing the impact of the knowledge collected in EcoCyc.
