ERIC, E. coli, and you

Just a little posting here. I have been playing around with a website called ERIC and thought I would post about it since it seems pretty useful. ERIC - Enteropathogen Resource Integration Center is
one of eight Bioinformatics Resource Centers (BRC) for Biodefense and Emerging/Re-Emerging Infectious Diseases. Funded by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), ERIC serves as an information resource for five members of the bacterial family Enterobacteriaceae.
So if you want to learn more about E. coli and its relatives and their genomes, this is a good place to start


  1. Hi Jonathan

    You may be reading my book to your daughter, well I am reading your blog with my son. He has requested that I rerun the "evolution dance" he remembers from your blog.

    I will look for it now

    Pam and Cliff

  2. Maybe we should get them to post to the blogs ...

  3. Jonathan,

    Can you comment a bit more on what you like about ERIC?

  4. I think the key word was "seems" --- I did not really use it but on first glance it seemed like it could have useful stuff. Not so sure though since I have not delved more deeply into it.
