The complete genome sequence of Escherichia coli K-12 strain W3110
was released from DDBJ. Accession number is
As to E. coli K-12 genome, the annotation workshop,
Monica Riley of
Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL)
worked as a leader,
was held in 2003 and 2005 at MBL. From Japan, the researchers of
and DDBJ participated in the workshop. An accurate and
completeness annotation were assigned to the most recent and
exact genome sequences of two E. coli K-12 strains
(strain W3110 and MG1655 whose genome sequences were
determined in Japan and U.S.A, respectively).
The result of the workshop has been already published as a paper in
Nucleic Acids Research.
Riley, M., et al. "Escherichia coli K-12: a cooperatively developed annotation snapshot--2005", Nucleic Acids Res., 34, 1-9 (2006).
E. coli is one of the most important organisms for
various biological fields, such as molecular biology, genome
sequencing, systems biology, etc. The release of accurate and
completeness E. coli genome annotation provide
researchers with meaningful information in the science field.
