A Comprehensive Overview of Online Resources to Identify and Predict Bacterial Essential Genes

Front Microbiol
PMCID: 5711816
PMID: 29230204
DOI: 10.3389/fmicb.2017.02331

[…] abase of predicted Essential Genes (pDEG). Many detailed information of the predicted essential genes are provided in the database, and the records can be freely accessed and downloaded ().OGEE is an Online GEne Essentiality database. Both essential and non-essential genes obtained from large-scale experiments are openly accessible in this database. The developers also complement their data with t […]
