Provides an overview of small RNA (sRNA) in E. coli. ECSBrowser is a comprehensive screening for E. coli sRNAs using a deep sequencing approach. It shows that many as-yet-undiscovered sRNAs are encoded in the E. coli genome. This browser contains the deep sequencing data and detail information about both the novel candidate sRNAs and previously known sRNAs. Furthermore, candidate sRNAs predicted by various methods in the previous studies are also integrated in this browser.
