A Powerful, User-Friendly Online Resource for Analyzing and Visualizing Genomic Variation within Enteric Bacteria

EnteroBase aims to establish a world-class, one-stop, user-friendly, backwards-compatible but forward-looking genome database, Enterobase – together with a set of web-based tools, EnteroBase Backend Pipeline – to enable bacteriologists to identify, analyse, quantify and visualize genomic variation principally within the genera:

EnteroBase is populated with over 200,000 of genomic assemblies derived from publicly available complete genomes, sequence read archives and user uploads. Click here to Post an issue or bug about EnteroBase
