With the addition of the ECOCYC database and the SACCHDB database in
several sections each at the Sanger Centre, SRS has now passed the 100 total
for databases indexed around the world.

ECOCYC is a database of E.coli metabolic pathways from Peter Karp,
distributed as 6 flat file sections (E.coli metabolism, compounds,
enzyme reactions, genes, pathways and proteins).

SACCHDB is a database of budding yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae)
genome data, distributed as 5 flat file tables (genetic map,
locus, ORF, physical map and sequenced regions).

More information about these databases is available from the Sanger
Centre SRS pages:

then click on the "?!" against a database at the Sanger Centre for
a description of the data, a link to the original FTP site,
and details of search fields and links.

To search these databases with SRS:


where you will find them listed under "Metabolic" and "Genome" libraries.

Naturally, as I am still working on the indexing of these databases,
the details may change from time to time.
