I am interested in finding out some general phenotype information from a list of species. Basically, given a species name, I'd like to be able to know it's general information like:
Gram Stain, Aerobic/Anaerobic, and Morphology. Any other defining phenotypic characteristics would be interesting as well.
I think something like the GIDEON database would be like what I'm after, but it seems to be a paid model database. I'd really like to be able to automate looking up a bunch of names at a time, which is why I'm interested in a database kind of file. Anyone have any suggestions?
