  • The Phenotype: Type heading has a pull-down menu with different classes of phenotypes that the mutation might confer on the strain. For example, Growth phenotype is for mutations that affect growth temperature, carbon source utilization, etc. Sensitivity to is for mutations that make a strain more sensitive to a chemical compound. We hope that the choices are self-explanatory. If none of the choices fit the phenotype you want to enter, select Other and please make a suggestion in the Notes section below the table or send us an email at
  • To add a citation to the Reference Column, simply type PMID:###, where ### is the PubMed ID number.
  • The final column is to indicate sources of strains carrying this allele, for example, the Coli Genetics Resource Center or the National BioResource Project of the National Institute of Genetics.
