Search NCCB bacteria/plasmids database
This database contains data on about 4,500 mutant strains available from NCCB (the
part of the collection formerly known as Phabagen). They may or may not contain
plasmids (natural or constructed). These plasmids are not used as cloning vectors,
but are interesting because of the acquired phenotype of the host/plasmid combination
(e.g. F plasmids, Col plasmids).
The database also describes about 1,000 wild type strains available from NCCB (the
part of the collection formerly known as LMD).

This option allows you to search for a strain with a particular strain number or
name. The number may be an NCCB collection number, e.g. NCCB 1001,
a number from another collection, or a strain/mutant name like DH5alpha.
This option allows you to search for strains having particular chromosomal markers,
or incorporating certain plasmids.
