Assigning bacterial strains to species via the Internet – Electronic taxonomy provides a portal for the electronic taxonomy of bacteria, providing a common format and software for assigning strains to species via the Internet.

Electronic taxonomy contrasts with the current approach for distinguishing species within a genus, and for defining new species, which is based on polyphasic taxonomy, an approach that incorporates all available phenotypic and genotypic data into a consensus classification (Vandamme et al., 1996).
