New essential gene dataset

Delineating a set of essential genomic elements and proteins that make up a living organism helps to understand critical cellular processes that sustain life. Essential genes in a bacterium constitute a minimal genome, forming a set of functional modules, which play key roles in the emerging field of synthetic biology. A new ‘essential gene’ dataset coming from Database of Essential Genes (DEG) has been set up in MicroScope.
