EGGS database: Essential Genes on Genome Scale

SEED maintains an up-to-date database of all microbial gene essentiality data experimentally obtained in the currently published genome-scale gene essentiality screens (listed in Table 1). Comparative analysis of these data across multiple organisms in a rich genomic, biochemical, and phylogenetic contexts provided by the collection of annotated Subsystems greatly facilitates their interpretation and practical applications, such as, understanding of cellular networks, gene and pathway discovery, identification of novel drug targets, and strain engineering.
