Dear Andrew: We use a relationaldatabase program called 4D. We developed a
template from this that keeps track of our strains. This runs on a
MacIntosh. You probably would need further refinements for the Salmonella
collection. In my opinion, 4D is the most versatile database available. Of
course, it would be easier to get packaged software. If you are successful,
let me know. If you are interested in seeing our database, let me know.
