The EcoCyc Database

Nucleic Acids Res. 2002 Jan 1;30(1):56-8. doi: 10.1093/nar/30.1.56.


EcoCyc is an organism-specific pathway/genome database that describes the metabolic and signal-transduction pathways of Escherichia coli, its enzymes, its transport proteins and its mechanisms of transcriptional control of gene expression. EcoCyc is queried using the Pathway Tools graphical user interface, which provides a wide variety of query operations and visualization tools. EcoCyc is available at
